The Top 100 (1/49)


Jo Hummel's work is characterised by a painted and paper collaged surface on which she employs spontaneous variations of space, colour and form. 

Although her painting collages are physically engaged and materially driven the context is purposefully anthropological and Hummel’s works are informed by human habits and behaviour, with a particular interest in determinism and freewill just as much as formal concerns.


Education: Royal College of Art London 2004-2006. 

Recent solo exhibitions: Simulation Paintings After Nyne Gallery 2021 and Transformer Nordic Art Agency Sweden 2020. Jo also curated ‘Dear Painting’ a survey on contemporary British painting which was exhibited in Malmo, Sweden. Her work has been included in satellite exhibition Afternoon Tea at the 53rd Venice Biennale, Jerwood Drawing Prize, and RA Summer Exhibition, and London Art Fair. 

Jo has received a number of Arts Council Grants for the Arts awards for temporary installations and research residencies. 

Works by Jo Hummel are included in both public and private collections and she has a growing international collector base. 

Her work was featured in the Observer newspaper in an article titled ‘‘Next Generation turns its back on Emin and Hirst’s conceptual artworks’ May 2011, and ‘Picking up a Picasso is one click away’ in the Times August 2013.
