Jasmine Pradissitto's paintings are a 21st century twist on gestural abstraction. As an ex-physicist with a PhD from UCL turned fine artist, (Goldsmiths and London Metropolitan), her pieces are process based and experiments in fabrication using the physical laws; either as experimentations in the singular line using gravity, or in the exploration of 'dynamic' colour in light and plastic.
Based in South London, she had her first solo show in Regent's Place in 2009 (with Emineo) and has been shortlisted for various prizes including, the Celeste Painting Prize, Lauteiri Moores and Creekside and won the prize for Life Drawing at the working Men’s College. She has shown recently at Mascells Gallery, and at the Alpan Gallery in New York. Currently, she has a light piece in ‘Precious’, a touring museum show (Brighton) and had a two person show in '09 with Angela Morris-Winmill; fashion designer. An investigation on the nature of abstraction in the fabricated line, their collaborative structures evoke a kind of feminine perspective on Jackson Pollock crossed with Issay Miyake.
Jasmine is currently working on a piece for 'Subterranean' with Illumini and is starting on an exciting collaboration with Jon Adams in which both light pieces and their response in sound will be explored based upon transitions from the Periodic Table.
