Press Release:

Los Angeles (June 24, 2016) — On Saturday, July 16th, Corey Helford Gallery will proudly present their first solo exhibition, titled “Allusions and Allegories,” with world-renowned fantasy artist Jasmine Becket-Griffith.

Over the past two decades, Becket-Griffith has captivated a worldwide audience working as a fine artist, painting traditionally by hand with acrylic paints. Becket-Griffith’s paintings blend realism with wide-eyed wonder – exploring gothic themes, with elements of classical literature, fairytales, nature and fantasy. You may recognize her paintings from her merchandising and licensing line with Disney, plus her artwork can be found in many books such as the Spectrum fine art collections, Gothic Art Now, The World of Faery, Big Eye Art, and more.

Regarding her new work, Becket-Griffith notes: “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.”

A new piece featured in Becket-Griffith’s new collection, titled “Tableaux Vivants III: Salome and Sphinx,” is the third piece in her “Tableaux Vivants” series, which combines her original rococo style portraiture set amongst tiny tableaux “living images” from exciting historic paintings. The piece was inspired by Gustave Moreau (French symbolist from the 1800s), specifically Salomé and Oedipus and the Sphinx. The beautiful henna-like ornamentation on the large figure is also inspired by the “tattoos” Moreau covered his characters with in his later work.
