Jasmine Crisp is an emerging artist born and based in Adelaide, South Australia. She is a current recipient of the 2018 Carclew artist in residence program (North Adelaide) after recently graduating with a Bachelor of Visual Art Honours from Adelaide Central School of art (2017). In 2018 she was awarded first prize in the YouthScape Art Prize, a finalist in the SALA Advertiser awards, Emma Hack Art Prize and Kennedy Art Prize.
Working primarily in painting and drawing, Jasmine's characteristic practice is informed by investigations into photography, collage, installation, mural painting and other and non-traditional painting surfaces.
Jasmine is fascinated with the relationships between people, their belongings and home environments. Her paintings are driven by ideas concerning how objects and places are treasured, valued, possessed, or used as forms of self-adornment and identification. She combines personal experiences, relationships with others and literature to construct narrative paintings set in both domestic and imagined spaces.
