Painter & prolific maker, Mama of 5, Dreaming of a better World, Love over Fear, Power in presence


    Jasmine is a professional practicing artist of more than twenty years whose work is best described as the meeting of exploration and refinement. Jasmine has taken her art to a number of mediums – sculpture, large-scale public works and intimate paintings for private collection, and more recently film and animation. She is not afraid to venture outside an established comfort zone. Whatever her choice of art form, Mansbridge brings a refined and meticulous hand to the work; her deliberation and contemplation are evident at all times. The work provokes thought and wonder and gives the viewer the chance to apply their personal storytelling, as they unpack the geometry and portals of Mansbridge’s imagined world.

    Jasmine also writes about the philosophies that underpin her practice and has published a book about her experiences of parenting her five children alongside a dynamic arts practice; There is a paintbrush in my coffee. She is increasingly concerned with making art that elevates human connection and consciousness. 

    Jasmine” practice has seen her travel broadly and she has visited and painted in Hong Kong, Beijing, Ethiopia, Tunisia, France, the USA and the UK. She often works with young people to encourage their unique creativity.

    Jasmine is a self taught artist based in Australia. She spent most of her formative years moving about before settling with her family in the Northern Territory, a remote part of the country. Here she lived until she was twenty six.


    For Jasmine the process, ritual and labour of painting itself are of integral importance to the finished piece, as are the intentions and musings that are imbued in every brushstroke. Her subject matter combines architectural forms and geometric imaginings which are used as metaphors to tell stories around our shared human experience. The drawing in, meditative and contemplative value of the paintings are meant to be an antidote to our busy, technological and image rich daily lives. Over the last nine years Jasmine has extended her studio practice to include both large scale wall art, sculptural and installation pieces which further examine the themes present in her painted works.

    In addition to thirteen solo shows - including an exhibition in New York, and numerous group exhibitions, Jasmine has also completed commissioned and public wall art and installations in Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong, Ethiopia, London, France and Beijing. Jasmine has been the recipient of various residencies and grants, including Professional Development Grants to develop her sculptural practice, visit galleries in London and also a residencies in Tunisia and the Chateau Orquevaux in rural France.


    Jasmine’s geometric inspired artworks have also been seen at the National Gallery of Victoria in the form of an installation in May 2019. In addition she has extended her mediums to create digital work that is a combination of poetry, animation and film, these have been included in many online and irl exhibitions including Flinders Street station and Federation Square in Melbourne, Penn Station in New York and recently on 1000 media screens in Belgium. Jasmine’s work has been featured in numerous print and online publications including Art Collector Magazine, Grand Design Magazine, The Design Files, Frankie Magazine, Mama Disrupt, Art Edit Magazine, House & Garden, Real Living Magazine, Belle Magazine, Vogue and The Interiors Addict blog. A mother of five Jasmine has also written about this aspect of her life in her book THERE IS A PAINTBRUSH IN MY COFFEE 2016.

    As my overall theme and inspiration is always shifting I feel like a good way to capture it is via sharing my most recent exhibition statement.


    I began creating this body of work last year at a residency at the Chateau Orquevaux in rural France. I took the partially completed paintings home to my studio in country Victoria to add the colour and finish them. I have always loved to travel and create work in new environments because of the way my subconscious absorbs and then produces new elements within my practice as a result.

    Within these pieces I can see the visual influence of French architecture and decoration, and the repertoire of devices I use to construct and support the narrative within my work has been expanded. The show title and concept; 'Poetry Buried in Geometry’, emerged as a means to explain an overarching idea that our ways of being can be divided into two parts. Our poetry and our geometry. If the geometry is the fixed point in our lives: the structure, the unchangeable immovable part, then the poetry is the emotion, the feelings, the soft and the flowing. The juxtaposition of these elements feels like a warm and poetic approach to an ever more complex world.

    I have been painting now for more that 20 years and have become increasingly interested in using my practice as a way to draw attention to and explore the philosophical and metaphysical aspects of lives. I am curious about the worlds that exists within us and outside of us. The things that we don't quite have all the answers for. The universe and the celestial systems, dreams, religious ideas, consciousness, serendipity, fate, luck, science and love. All subjects that have captivated me throughout my life and can be looked at via the ‘Poetry Buried in Geometry’ lens. All the things that continue to challenge what we know - the fixed point or the 'geometry’.

    The paintings always start with a pencil drawing on stretched raw linen. I then fill the space around this with white gesso and add the colour last. This preserves my original mark and the energy of the idea. It is a very meditative process that requires time and concentration.

    All my life I have been drawn to colour and within my practice I am always wanting to push this as far as I can. To not stay within my comfort zone. This sees me continually mixing paint to get the particular shade I want and is one of the reasons it is easier to bring work back to my home studio for this part of the process.

    The reality is that every painting in this exhibition will resonate differently with each individual. This is the beauty of art I know. As an artist I aim for every piece to be aesthetically pleasing before going out into the world, to then be layered with new meaning and significance assigned via it’s collector.

    This exhibition opened in Sydney in May 2024. Get in touch if you would like to see the catalogue from this exhibition.
