BIOGRAPHY

Linda Oy Ho’s ethereal and reflective sculptural artworks unite concepts from philosophy, spirituality and ecology. Ho‘s art practice highlights our innate connection to the natural world. Luminous, polished and refined art works combine unexpected mediums such as painting, metal, wood, fibre and textiles to reflect the intrinsic concept and narrative. 

Since 2015, Ho has been selected as a finalist in the Yering Station Sculpture Awards for three consecutive years, Wyndham Art Prize, Brisbane Art Prize, among others.  She loves creating artworks in her Abbotsford Convent studio, Melbourne.
