“If an artist is to be categorized, I would sit uncomfortably under the label of conceptual art.”  Other constants such as an all-pervading theme or medium will not be found… these aspects change as the artist’s interests develop, or as a new project begins.

Jo O’Connor finds the human condition endlessly interesting – our habits and the way we live, personal and public space, our uniqueness and conversely our similarities… and what makes us human. The questions ‘What & Why is human nature?’ are a point of fascination.

Her work is often a result of process-based and/or site-specific explorations. Conceptually, the work may use irony or humour. Formally, the elements of randomness and repetition feature significantly as a reflection of nature and industry: to illustrate both the uncertainty and the routine that mark our lives.
