News from Radiant Jasmin

516 East Second Street, 1st Floor
South Boston, MA 02127
June 6 - July 18, 2009
Reception: Saturday, June 20, 3-5pm

In the Office Gallery–Radiant Jasmin (Rockland) for her first Boston solo exhibition, “Undulations of Color” is also showing a new installation. Jasmin is a visual artist who practices other art forms-- multi-media dance, jewelry design/fabrication, poetry and voice/singing. For this installation, she is using food packing materials and more specially the materials used to keep apples from bruising. It is comprised of two “works”- “Softly Swaying” and “Rainbows with Golds” a work that is composed of 40 individual panels. She states, “In this installation I use the convex side of packing insert trays that are placed between apples to prevent them from being bruised. I noticed these trays in the produce section of food stores and loved the waved surface immediately. They represent the ebb and flow of life, up and down, in and out as well as the synchronistic reuse of a precious material and express the need to achieve balance in one’s personal existence and in nature. My next installation in this series will feature the concave side of the trays”. She has exhibited extensively in Massachusetts at such venues as Bunker Hill Community College, the L’Attitude Gallery, the Indigena Gallery, the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Roxbury & Mission Hill Open Studios, 4th Floor Artists Open Studios. Jasmin has performed locally at the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists, Milky Way Lounge, Dorchester Open Studios, Wake Up the Earth Festival, Haven Art Lounge, and the Ronan Park Festival. She has studied at the North Bennet Street School and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
