JASMINE RASKAS Harmonics
acrylic on canvas
I work with paint, sculpture, and assemblage to explore patterns found in natural growth, form, and collective systems. I’m fascinated by the mathematical rules that govern the universal emergence of order. For example, the same branching patterns are found in the distribution of rivers, networks of neurons, a strike of lightning, and the growth of a tree, thus re-occurring across multiple levels of scale and appearing in both microscopic and macroscopic imagery. I create entities that are purposefully ambiguous, but simultaneously representational of the natural world. I’m particularly interested in the point at which objects and systems are labeled to be intelligent, conscious, or alive, and how these distinctions relate to the 21st century’s relationship to plants and technology. My work gives animistic qualities to a variety of forms exploring the crossroads at which intelligent systems may alternatively be defined as sentient creatures.
