With a New York exhibition now under her belt, Jasmine Mansbridge’s latest solo exhibition The Space Between, will be held at Rtist Gallery from 15 May until 5 June 2014 in Prahran. In 15 paintings, the collection visually explores the similarities and differences in the experienced self through a multitude of textures and shapes.
Jasmine’s style has changed significantly since her last collection. Her most recent work marks a departure from her earlier candy kaleidoscope landscapes, presenting solo structures and forms that exist amongst rich, evocative hues. Architectural inspirations, stairs, buildings and windows are narrative anchors in the otherwise abstract; a representation of the self in the process of individuality.
“Although we are all human, it is our different experiences in life that set us apart and make us unique… I am interested in sharing my own experiences and making sense of both the difficult and beautiful things, and the bittersweet things, that make up a life,” she says.
Painting began as a hobby for Jasmine at the age of 17, but has blossomed through passion and dedication into her way of exploring life, experiences, and memories. Throughout her years of living in Australia, she has travelled and lived in several states, witnessing a vastness in culture and nature that greatly influences her creations. She now lives in Hamilton, Victoria, with her husband and four children.
The Space Between, 15 MAY to 5 JUNE 2014.
