About Jasmine


Jasmine Worth crafts scenes from fairy tales gone awry—swirling seamlessly between the sweet and surreal, inevitably dipping into the valley of the morbid.

Jasmine studied formally at Studio 2nd Street in southern CA, and earned her BFA from the Laguna College of Art and Design. While she possesses the credentials, the product of her toils clearly pours from the cobwebbed corners of her mind, not the classroom. Her paintings—a cabaret of vibrant hues—are a blend of soft textures and colorful characters, juxtaposed against gloomy themes. Created in her home of San Diego, Jasmine combines dark influences and subtle-yet-serious undertones with raw artistic talent and a rarely seen creativity. Her work exudes a strong bearing of individuality, manifested through characters that speak almost vocally and give a new element of depth to an otherwise two dimensional medium. Each scene tells a story and every story is as diverse in emotion as it is in appearance.

weird

eerie but beautiful

reminds me of Frida Kahlo

I immediately saw the most helpful combination--the material self (ego) and the Divine Self, drawn from Carl Jung's depth psychology. "Creepy" is one description of the unconscious, but there are millions more. Certainly worth the exploration!

thanks for your soul-conscious drawing

Beautiful work, reminds me of Leonora Covington or Remedios Varo. I'm glad to see it.

beautiful

Meaningful depth, sensitive and spirited, can feel the visual thought, intense drawn feeling. Illusion for thought.

scary

Uh what?
