Jasmine Little: New WorkSeptember 15th - October 15th, 2022
Nina Johnson is pleased to present Jasmine Little: New Work, an exhibition of new work by artist Jasmine Little. On view, September 15- October 15, 2022, the exhibition explores her continued exploration of the vessel as it relates to ancient depictions of the human form.
Jasmine Little, both painter and ceramist, presents sculptural ceramic plates featuring intricate carvings of vegetal patterns and slender mythological figures.
She has become increasingly known for her ceramic works that draw inspiration from a variety of art styles ranging from Flemish and Renaissance painting, to medieval manuscripts, Safavid period carpets, Greek pottery, and Japanese woodblock prints.
Little creates objects that contain an essence of humanity; her ceramic works, while not human, bring forth a feeling of life through their connection to a diverse span of histories and imagery that connects with us all. Her work aims to convey universal messages and portray themes that are not grounded in a specific time or place.
The works in Jasmine Little: New Work inspire both a sense of community and awareness of humanity in the viewer through their perennial nature and roots in various artistic movements throughout history.
