Description'Alice in a Dali Dress' is the title - part of my sub-series called 'Alice in Other Lands' which are paintings featuring Alice in a variety of unusual circumstances, thrown into settings inspired by my love of art history (be sure to check out the other installments honoring Bosch, Velzquez, Brueghel, da Vinci and more). This of course is a bit of a parody / homage to Spanish Surrealist (and fellow sometime Floridian artist) Salvador Dali! Here we have my Alice with nods to countless Dali references - her dress of course is a reference both to the 1937 fashion collaboration Dali did with Elsa Schiaparelli as well as 'Les Diners De Gala Les Canibalismes De L'automne Lobster' piece he did a bit later. Other nods to Geopoliticus/Birth of the New Man, and of course melting clocks as in the 1931 masterpiece 'Persistence of Memory.' Dali himself was a big Alice fan, so the combination of the two works out well! My own original acrylic painting.
Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Celebration, Florida Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement My name is Jasmine Becket-Griffith. (Aka Strangeling or mis-spelled as Jasmine Beckett-Griffith). I am 29 years old and I live in beautiful Celebration, Florida. I am a full-time artist and I make my living selling my artwork. I have been selling my original Fairy, Gothic, and Fantasy artwork online since 1997.
I grow weary of the mundane world, and I am trying to slowly create my own through my fantasy artwork. I believe that with each piece of art I get out of my system, onto paper, and into your home I have done my part to make this place a more magical planet.
You may have seen my artwork featured in new lines of clothing and other merchandise being sold in thousands of retail stores across the country, in places like Hot Topic, Torrid, Target, SuperTarget, Hastings, Busch Gardens, Disneyland Paris, the Bradford Exchange, Hamilton Collection, and other stores throughout the country! Some of the paintings that I am selling here on ImageKind are the very images that will be licensed for these products. Here is your chance to own the actual artwork!
My work can be found in collections and galleries throughout the world, and am featured in the books "The Art of Faery" & "The World of Faery" now in stores! I was also selected to have my artwork appear in "Spectrum 11," "Spectrum 13," and the new "Spectrum 15"! Also be sure to check out my solo art book called "Fairy: the Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith" as well as my NEW "Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Portfolio Volume I" solo art book! Be sure to check all of my galleries, I paint new paintings nearly everyday and plan to add them as prints here often!
