Jo was born and raised in the small riverside village which had become a part of mega Metropolis of SEOUL Korea. Pandemic isolation drove the artist to produce the “It Takes a Village” series. At the end of 2021 Jo started Chrysanthemum series inspired by the Korean poet, Seo Jeong-Ju’s poem “Beside the Chrysanthemum”. After doing four paintings, often wiping tears, Jo realized she was actually doing her own self-portrait.
