Work-in-Progress for Corey Helford GalleryJasmine Becket-Griffith
Work-in-progress! A little farther along now – for a group show opening January 24 at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA. Most of the basic shading & sketching is all done now, I’m starting to lay in more small details and layers of colour. It’s a circular painting with a circus theme – called “Bosch Circus” for the show “Freaks & Americana”. This piece is inspired by the circus history in my own family (a troupe of aerialists from early last century known as the Flying Behees ) and of course some phantasmagorical animals and performers inspired by Hieronymus Bosch (from considerably earlier). This painting will debut at the opening reception at CHG Circa on January 24th from 7-10PM. Participating artists include: Kukula, Colin & Sas Christian, SHAG, Ron English, David Stoupakis, Michael Hussar, Tom Bagshaw, Yosuke Ueno, me of course, and many more wonderful artists. I probably won’t be able to make it out there in person for that evening, but definitely drop by if you can! This original painting is acrylics on panel, will be in a handcarved frame, and will be priced at $8200. Prints will also be available soon!
