Jasmine Co (she/they) is an artist based in Portland, OR. Their most current projects are inspired by inquiries on the progress of humanity and the dreaming world. Systems, astrological archetypes, transpersonal wisdom, & connection to nature all influence the process. Their work includes fluid and colorful combinations of realistic figures and abstract forms, working mostly with acrylics. Almost always, the pieces are painted entirely while listening to music. The artwork invites the viewer to stay present with it long enough to hear the rhythm, beats, and melodies in the shapes, forms, and hues. To experience the movement in the stillness.
Living in a time faced with unprecedented social and environmental crises, we’re asked to reflect on what we really value. Creating art remains a deeply human act of resilience, and it is through this creative practice that Jasmine continues to explore expression, beauty, and meaning.
