Jasmine's new paintings - Tableaux Vivants, Allegory of Decay, The Star, Femme Fatale & more! [Aug. 1st, 2016|10:01 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith

Updates from Jasmine!



I have been busy - a ton of new artwork to show you!!

I am also on my way to Europe at the moment, spending some time at my studio in London, then visiting through Paris & Munich.  While I'm gone you can still place orders at Strangeling.com, still bid up at eBay, buy stuff at Etsy, the galleries, etc. - the only delay will be on new orders for Limited Edition (Hand Embellished) canvas prints - those have to wait until I'm back home to ship (August 15) since I need to paint them by hand =)  All previous orders have now already been shipped.

While I'm away, I'm doing daily "penny auctions" up in my own eBay store here - 10 new ACEOs, limited editions &  more will be popping up just about each evening while I'm gone - and again, I'll be back home in time to ship everything on the 15th.  We have also SOLD OUT of the Masterpiece Editions for Unseelie Court:  Wrath and Unseelie Court:  Sloth - so the #5/5 last one of each is up for a pennyauction here to give everybody a chance

Now for some new paintings!

The first of the new prints available is my "Allegory of Decay" - you can see herhere - the original sold, but we have paper prints and Limited Edition Canvases on SALE from $9.99 this week here

And the other print I'm releasing today is my new "Tableaux Vivants III:  Salome & the Sphinx" - you can see her here - again, the original sold, but we have paper prints and limited edition canvas prints on SALE from $9.99 this week here

I have some new work-in-progress photos to show you - one is for "The Star" (for the Lowbrow Tarot project show at Alexi Era Gallery in Oregon) and the other is for "Femme Fatale" (for the Femme to Femme Fatale show curated by Beautiful.Bizarre magazine at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco).  Details of both are below!


And finally in other news - next month I'll be back home in Florida and doing several upcoming shows in the area! August 20th I'll be at Disney Springs at the Marketplace Co-Op (and yes, they'll have my new Princess Leia and my Princess Jasmine there!) details are here .  Then the next weekend - August 27th I'm in Disney Springs again but at Pop Gallery for the release party for my Halloween Coloring Book - details are here .  Then the next weekend (Labor Day Weekend) I will be at DragonCon in Atlanta September 2-5th details here while simultaneously the same weekend in Kansas City my sister Amber will be opening my gallery at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival (I'll be there in person October 1, 2, 8, and 9) details here.  Then wrapping up, back to Disney Springs September 10th for another event at the Marketplace Co-Op, details here .

"Allegory of Decay"
12x16" Original Acrylic Painting $5000 SOLD
Prints & canvases from $9.99 on sale HERE



“Allegory of Decay” 12x16" Original Acrylic Painting $5000 SOLD - prints & canvases from only $9.99 available here (or just search:  Decay  at Strangeling.com )

This piece debuted & sold as part of my “Allusions and Allegories” show at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA.

“Allegory of Decay” is the specific allegory on this one. I’ve used the painstaking process of hand painting tiny squares to simulate a pixelated “mosaic” simulating a fake “censored” area. Referencing Dutch Golden Age “Vanitas” still life imagery (skull, roemer) there are a couple of lovely maidens (kind of a “death & the maiden” idea), one of which has a slightly undead look…. There is also some significant insect activity in this one – cockroaches, silverfish, maggots, etc. Icky! But I love this one.

Prints are at Strangeling.com here , we have 8x10" and 12x16" glossy prints - signed on the back by me - on sale this week (only $9.99 and $19.99). We also have limited edition canvases for $125 - they are 11x14", hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of only 25 made, wrapped on boards and ready-to-hang. All are at the link above, or just search "Allegory" up at Strangeling.com

We also have all the various print types on eBay here

and Etsy here

You can also see the original painting still while it hangs at the Corey Helford Gallery (downtown LA, Gallery 2) through August 20th in person =)

"Tableaux Vivants III:  Salome and the Sphinx"
12x16" Original Acrylic Painting $5000 SOLD
Prints & canvases from $9.99 on sale HERE



“Tableaux Vivants III:  Salome and Sphinx” 12x16" Original Acrylic Painting $5000 SOLD - prints & canvases from only $9.99 available here (or just search:  Tableaux  atStrangeling.com )

This piece debuted & sold as part of my “Allusions and Allegories” show at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA.

This is the third piece in my "Tableaux Vivants" series - my series combining my original rococo style portraiture set amongst tiny tableaux "living images" from exciting historic paintings. This one is inspired by Gustave Moreau - French symbolist from the 1800s, specifically Salome and Oedipus and the Sphinx. The beautiful henna-like ornamentation on the large figure is also inspired by the "tattoos" Moreau covered his characters with in his later work.

Prints are at Strangeling.com here , we have 8x10" and 12x16" glossy prints - signed on the back by me - on sale this week (only $9.99 and $19.99). We also have limited edition canvases for $125 - they are 11x14", hand embellished by me in acrylic paints, signed & numbered out of only 25 made, wrapped on boards and ready-to-hang.

"The Star"
12x18" Acrylic painting on Panel - Price will be $5000 - email auniakahn@me.com at Alexi Era Gallery if interested!



Work-in-progress! "The Star" is my card for the Lowbrow Tarot - a tarot themed book & exhibition being held at Alexi Era gallery at their new Eugene Oregon location! "The Star" is a fun card - it has a lot of great symbolism traditionally - it's a "hopeful" card, with the main figure always pouring out two water jugs (she has one in her other hand too). I always equate the figure in The Star with the ancient Greek Goddess of Youth - "Hebe" - she always has a couple of pitchers/cups pouring from either hand, so I have given her some of the classical aspects of Hebe as well.

The stars will be sparkling as crystal - almost glowing - and the lower half of the painting will be in rich warm tones (magenta), with the uppermost corner around the primary star done in cool blues (as shown). She's an acrylic painting and is a slightly unusual size - 12x18" to fit precisely into the tarot card format the show is using.

If you look closely you'll see a lovely ibis bird (the type that sometimes lands in my backyard in Florida!) in the distance - they are usually in the background of the Star cards in traditional tarot decks like the Rider Waite, etc.

She will be priced at $5000. Direct the inquiries to Aunia Kahn -
auniakahn@me.com

And of course eventually I'll have prints, etc. up for sale as well at Strangeling.com - the show opens August 5 so that will be her official debut!

"Femme Fatale"
11x14" Acrylic painting on Panel - Price will be $4000 - email  info@moderneden.com at Modern Eden Gallery if interested!



Work-in-progress - almost finished! Her name is "Femme Fatale" - the piece I've painted for the "Femme to Femme Fatale" group show curated by Beautiful.Bizarre Magazine at the Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco.

She is an 11x14" acrylic on panel - she'll come beautifully framed, and will be priced at $4000.

As with my other faux-pixellated paintings - yes, this is what the painting looks like - no, it's not done with a computer, I've painted all the little squares myself. Kind of got an Eve / Cleopatra theme (the snake is based on the one in Winter's 19th Century Cleopatra) emphasizing the Femme Fatale theme.

If you are interested in the original painting contact info@moderneden.com | 415-956-3303 - and after the exhibition we'll have prints, etc. up at Strangeling.com =)

Exhibition Dates:
17 September - 8 October 2016

Opening Reception:
Saturday 17 September, 2016
Modern Eden Gallery
801 Greenwich St,
San Francisco, CA 94133 USA

Unfortunately I don't think I'll able to make the opening reception in person, but a lot of the other artists will - if you are in the Bay Area definitely stop by!
