Unframed, but ready to hang.

Says Jasmine Mansbridge of her work By the Way the Crow Flies: “The title of this piece is a phrase referencing distance which I heard many times as a child. The straight route is juxtaposed by the balancing geometric mass. The easy way and the hard way.


“How I approach the process of painting is very much influenced by the ethos and tone of my time in the Northern Territory and the way that I saw the Indigenous artists work. Making art and family life are not usually separated one from the other, but instead paintings are done amongst the chaos of family and everyday life.


“I am also in awe of the time that goes into the details of the work, and it was by watching Indigenous artists that I began to understand that paintings often take a long time. I believe it is this time spent with the work that infuses it with the artist’s intentions. The work therefore has more than just a visual aspect to it, but also the creative heart of the artist. When I paint, I imagine that the warmth that comes from 1000 paintbrush strokes will travel always with my work, wherever it hangs.”
