◄ Sculptures by Jo Owens Murray ►
► Jo Owens Murray ( artbyjo ) was raised in Florence, South Carolina and is one of nine children. She graduated from Rosemont College in May 1993 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art History and is a self-taught artist. Ms. Owens Murray’s sculptures are in the permanent collections of four museums.
She started her career as a photographer, but was drawn to assemblage sculpture by way of experiments with various recycled materials, jewelry and fabrics. Her assemblage sculptures, which she call “My Girls”, are unique and exceptional examples of contemporary Surrealism.
The beaded sculptures prompt questions about beauty, femininity, identity, loss, grief and redemption. Journalist Burton Wasserman wrote that her work is “deeply rooted layers of personal memory, thought and feeling, joined with reflections on the various roles played by women in society, past and present.”
