Isle of the Dead


This piece debuted and sold as part of my “Magical Thinking” show at the Corey Helford Gallery in LA.  If you don’t know about the Isle of the Dead (originated in the 1880s by Arnold Böcklin, later many other artists from Salvador Dali to HR Giger) – definitely Google it, there are many interpretations of the same visual symbolism. I’ve gone in a different direction with mine – not focusing on the “dead” specifically, but rather creatures that aren’t technically “alive” per se. Obviously the main character is a mermaid, but also in this piece there are some extinct animals such as plesiosaur, trilobites, pterodactyl and rhamphorhynchus (one of my favourite dinosaurs).  I painted a lot of this piece up as part of a live studo broadcast up on my Twitch channel, you can find archives of me painting her on my YouTube (JasmineBecket).  It was a large acrylic painting (for me at least!), the original sold at the gallery but we have prints and canvases available!  Böcklin’s version was one of the first mass-marketed prints in the late 1800s, Nabokov references it “hanging in every home in Berlin” at one point (I should be so lucky!).

The Masterpiece Limited Editions are now SOLD OUT.  We do have available the Open Edition Canvases which are remarqued with the JBG initial on the front, measure 12″x 18″ (also wrapped & ready-to-hang) and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.



Additional Details

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with Canon Lucia archival inks and signed ON THE BACK by ME, the artist. Small prints are printed on 8.5×11″ sheets, large prints on 13×19″ sheets, and XL prints on 17″x 22″ but the printed area will reflect the odd dimensions of the painting itself. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.


The Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases (20″x 300″, hand embellished, signed & numbered out of 5 at $795 each) are now sold out!  We do have the  Open Edition Remarqued Canvases (12″x18″ with a signed certificate at $125 each) available. All canvas prints are made on canvas with Canon Lucia archival inks. They are wrapped on boards and stretched over a frame and shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. Both types are on the deeper/thicker gallery wrapped boards than our earlier canvases have been, very sturdy and solid, and match the profile of those that are sold at Pop Gallery, etc. If you have any questions about the canvas prints or the differences between the Masterpiece Limited Editions and the Open Editions, please contact us!
