In a quest to find universal values, Junko Go’s paintings are not tied to a particular art movement. Instead, they possess a unique aesthetic encompassing elements of painting, drawing and storytelling that combine her Japanese heritage with an Australian perspective. An interest in dualism results in works that are simultaneously abstract and figurative, simple and complex.

Go’s paintings provide the opportunity to meander, search, rest, analyse; what at first glance appears a simple motif becomes a multifaceted story, woven over time by layers of paint and intertwining imagery.
