1987 Born in Washington, D.C.
Lives and works in Zürich
Through painting, sculpture and installation, Jasmine Gregory (*1987 in Washington, D.C.) explores the tensions of artistic production within a narrative system on the dominant values and symbols of hierarchy and power that permeate the social space. Jasmine Gregory’s paintings and sculptures are rich in historical references and are inspired by a critical and at times sarcastic reflection on painting as an artistic medium in today’s world.
My painterly ability and style switch between academicism and amateurism, highly stylized and playful, dark and comedic to create unconventional relationships within the composition that challenge and critique the traditional discourse of painting.
