About the Artist      

In this new body of work, I AM THE MUSE, Jasmine Mansbridge explores ideas of inspiration, progress and the relentless pursuit of creative joy through making. Mansbridge says, “I had been thinking about the idea of the external muse; about it being someone or something, about it being outside of me. The possibly losing that external thing froze me, until I had the realisation that I am the muse, the muse is me.” 

I AM THE MUSE draws on this ultimate realisation and brings incredible beauty and complexity to the works with signature colour, form and exciting composition. Mansbridge uses these principles to ignite personal storytelling in the audience, contemplating the wonder and unfamiliar imagined worlds of geometry through painting and sculpture.

About the Artist

Jasmine Mansbridge

Jasmine is a professional practising artist whose work is best described as the meeting of exploration and refinement. Jasmine has taken her art to a number of mediums — sculpture, large-scale public works and intimate paintings for private collections. She is not afraid to venture outside an established comfort zone. Whatever her choice of art form, Mansbridge brings a refined and meticulous hand to the work; her deliberation and contemplation are evident at all times. 

The work provokes thought and wonder and gives the viewer a chance to apply their personal storytelling as they unpack the geometry and portals of Mansbridge’s imagined world.
