“Alice in Other Lands”


"In her acrylic paintings, posters and illustrated memorabilia, the Gothic and surreal young American artist Jasmine Becket-Griffith also “Strangeling” creates new adventures in curiouser and curiouser ways. Part of a series called “Alice in Other Lands,” Alice is thrown into settings inspired by Jasmine’s love of art history, honoring Bosch, Dali, Velázquez, Brueghel, da Vinci and others. The viewer is invited to find out the multiple quotations in each “strangeling” among countless art historical and pop culture references. She creates melancholic fairy-tale-like heroines who adventure into craziness, oddities and nightmarish landscapes sustaining their girl-power flavored with sugar and spice, sweetness and shadows."
