Chaotic and multi-textured, the array of recycled and reclaimed materials in Jo Dennis’ studio mirror the decaying buildings depicted in her photographic work. Her recent move from London to Amsterdam has been a challenge for Dennis, whose process is entirely informed by her surroundings – the more shambolic, the better.

"I want to drag things I find on the street into my studio in Amsterdam. The streets here aren’t grimy but people have waste items, it’s just not obvious like in London"

"I love fluorescent colours because I grew up in the 90s rave culture. The excitement stayed with me"
