Corey Helford Gallery is delighted to present their first solo exhibition featuring the Jasmine Becket Griffith fairies with the title Allusions and Allegories, with the signature works of the renowned and world-known fantasy artist. Becket Griffith has enchanted the audiences all over the world in the past two decades with her fine art works, creating unique pieces by painting by hand with acrylic paints. Her works are the perfect blend of the realism and wonderful, magical world. She investigates gothic themes, implements the elements of classical literature, of fairytales, nature, and fantasy in general. Jasmine Becket Griffith paintings are easily recognizable to the wider public, as she has collaborated with Disney to create a merchandising and licensing line, and her works can be seen in various books, including the Spectrum fine art collections, Gothic Art Now, The World of Faery, Big Eye Art, and many others. Jasmine Becket Griffith fairy works are nothing short of amazing, and to add them to your collection would mean the world of magical experiences just waiting on your very wall to be lived!
The new piece in the Jasmine Becket Griffith fairies collection is entitled Tableaux Vivants III: Salome and Sphinx, and it is the third piece in her Tableaux Vivants series. This painting blends her original rococo style portraiture with the tiny tableaux “living images” from historic paintings. It was inspired by the 1800s French symbolist Gustave Moreau. The gorgeous henna-esque ornamentation on the large figure is inspired by the tattoos Moreau put on his characters in his later pieces. Regarding her new works, the artist said:
“My acrylic paintings in ‘Allusions and Allegories’ represent some of the themes, concepts and imagery that excite me both as an artist and as a person. These pieces are rife with appropriated classical art references, nods to past masters, literary characters, alchemical theories, universal symbols and other allusions I've re-imagined into my own world. I've patchworked my personal obsessions together with my own aesthetic ideals to create allegories I find beautiful.”
The freelance artist Jasmine Becket Griffith specializes in fantasy, gothic, and fairy artwork, and prefers acrylic on canvas or wood. Her works appear on a number of lines of licensed merchandise, including the aforementioned Disney. She is the star of the fantasy conventions such as Dragon*Con, MegaCon in Orlando and FaerieCon, and her fairy world artworks get a lot of attention each time she presents her figurines and Strangeling gothic, fairy, and mermaid works. Ever since 2006, she has been doing co-branded artwork with the Walt Disney Company as one of the independent contractors, which means that you can obtain some of her Strangeling fairy works in their shop. You can see her works in the Pop Gallery Orlando at Downtown Disney in the Walt Disney World Resort. The perfect opportunity to see Jasmine Becket Griffith fairies would be in the magical world of Disneyland, but for the audience who prefers a more sophisticated space, the Corey Helford Gallery exhibition is the place to be!
