Musings & Mysteries
March 11 - April 9, 2017
The Koskela Gallery is proud to present ‘Musing & Mysteries’, an exhibition by emerging contemporary Australian artist Jasmine Mansbridge.
Based in Hamilton, Victoria, Jasmine explores rural architectural forms and geometric imaginings in her kaleidoscopic acrylic paintings; the works are as much about the ritual and labour of painting, and the intentions and musings that are imbued in her brushstrokes.
In her signature style, Jasmine’s latest body of work explores joyous bold colour, giving her work an iconic textural element.
In addition to exhibiting in New York and seven solo shows - including one at the Hamilton Regional Gallery - and numerous group exhibitions, Jasmine has also completed murals for the National Australia Bank, TAFE and Warrnambool City Council. Jasmine is a self-taught artist who started painting and drawing as a child. As a busy and creative mother of five, Jasmine’s work is driven by a genuine passion for art and inspired by a diverse range of personal experiences.
Jasmine is also an author her book 'There's a Paintbrush in My Coffee: Living as a creative parent' was published in 2016.
