DescriptionI've always been interested in alchemy and medieval/renaissance science and magic (and how the two were very often interchangeable). I was lucky enough to see one of Nicholas Flamel's original books in London a few weeks ago, and it inspired me to explore some more alchemical themes in my work. There are a lot of references in old alchemical texts to an item called the 'Philosopher's Egg' - it is all veiled in such obscure mysticism it's difficult to decipher, but I liked the phrase so I have created my interpretation with the eggs growing with runes on them (symbols for Abstraction, Digestion, Reverberation, Composition and of course Cum Vino!), with a medieval landscape in the distance. This is the square full version of the painting scanned before framing - the original was framed triptych style, with a custom gothic frame that my husband Matt made for me. This square version shows a bit more than the original painting did as the intricate frame windows originally covered up some of the areas of this piece. This is 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!
