About

This stunning oil on canvas painting by Award Winning Artist Jo Holdsworth shows Trafalgar Square in London, beautifully capturing its majestic fountains and wonderful architecture.The painting is somewhat prophetic, showing a sparsely populated London at night. This atmospheric and thought provoking piece has been bespoke framed in a simple dark tray frame, setting off this striking and beautifully painted work to perfection. ABOUT JO HOLDSWORTH Jo Holdsworth is inspired by London’s ever-changing urban landscape. Responding to observations made during time spent in the capital, Holdsworth’s paintings draw from the pace and rhythm of everyday life. Born near Manchester into a musical and artistic household, Holdsworth's fascination with the movement and behaviour of crowds stems from the paintings of L.S. Lowry whose work she was introduced to at a young age by Lowry protégé and family friend, Pat Cooke. Other influences include early Twentieth-Century photography as well as the American realist painters George Bellows and Edward Hopper. Holdsworth cites first seeing Paul Strand’s photograph, Wall Street, 1915, as a pivotal moment, confirming to her the role of artist as onlooker.Often depicting transitional places like city squares, high street footpaths and railway stations, Holdsworth is drawn to the individual in the crowd and the relationships between figures and the spaces they occupy. Her paintings combine a modernist approach to form with an almost romantic sensibility, combining a cinematic palette with loose, spontaneous brush work. She interprets the figure in long elongated silhouettes, populating her canvases with these anonymous denizens of modernity, to produce images of the city which capture the shifting moods of urban life. Jo Holdsworth was recently awarded the Royal Arts Prize Visitors' Choice Award and her Show was presented at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, Pall Mall, London in March 2020.
