Shifting Time And Space With Jasmine Mansbridge

Art

Jasmine Mansbridge is an artist who currently lives in the Western District of Victoria, but grew up living in many remote corners of Australia. The artist has also worked as a paint mixer, teachers assistant and parole officer – and brings these rich and varied experiences to her art practice.

On the eve of Jasmine’s new exhibition Your Time For The Moon opening, we take a tour through her abstract, geometric works, that offer an exploration of portals across time and space.

‘If you really think about time, it is the thread that underpins our entire human existence. Time is everything.’ – Jasmine Mansbridge

Jasmine Mansbridge’s paintings depict striking geometric forms, of portals, stairs and architectural shapes in clean minimalist lines. Think Louis Barragan meets M.C Escher, where the Mexican architect’s colours palette and arch-filled designs are realised as impossible sites that defy our understandings of both time and space.

Jasmine’s upcoming exhibition, Your Time For The Moon, explores the limits, potentials and cultural understandings of time, on both a local and global scale. The title comes from the idea of the world turning, and passing on the time for sleeping to the alternative hemisphere. In the same way that it is always cocktail hour somewhere in the world, it is always someone else’s ‘time for the moon.’

 

A new collaboration between the iconic Australian bedlinen brand, and floral designer Saskia Havekes of Grandiflora.

The artist explains ‘when one is pinned to a singular location, time feels static, a day followed by night. But my travels over the last little while have changed how I feel about time and my notion of it.’ She expands ‘if you really think about time, it is the thread that underpins our entire human existence. Time is everything. Everything time gives, it takes away.’ 

If you would like to enter into one of Jasmine’s windows into time in motion, Your Time For The Moon is showing at 19 Karen Gallery on the Gold Coast, and opens this Saturday!
