Jasmine’s practice involves the unravelling and exploration of her heritage. The synthesis of a Japanese and British nationality inspires her journey of self-discovery. The expression of the differences between these two opposing cultures is shown through a range of visual languages within her painting. From collaged motif works highlighting the manic consumerist nature of Japanese popular culture to reserved figurative pieces concerning female representation, reminiscent of Japanese woodblock print. Within her painting underlies various commentaries upon the defining elements within Japanese culture and society, ranging from traditional art and aesthetics to modern day developments.
