Guest Artist: Jasmine Keir
For the last 20 years my career has seen me engage with a direct selling technique by promoting prolifically at expos and markets throughout N.Z. under the home-wares name of ‘Jazz -Reflective Art’.
I am lucky to have sold Internationally and nationwide from Whangarei to Bluff. I have also participated in exhibitions and exhibited in galleries Nationwide.
I have had a love affair with the South since 15 years old when I first moved here. My excitement for the area has seen me share equal time between Canterbury and Southland, which has offered me a mighty appreciation for the landscapes in between. I have returned to live 3 times.
Having now established myself permanently in beautiful Centre Bush I am creating one off original artworks under my signature of Jasmine Keir in two core mediums creating two different finishes. The first, my lifetime love Enameled Glass. The second is a 5-year passion with oxidized copper.
My interest lies deep within our natural environment and the connection between man and his impact...or lack of impact. I find Southland to be a most stunning and largely natural place in which I can explore the rugged rawness- often of similarities between the viewer, the situation and the subject.
My work has evolved from a single medium of enamels on glass to that of many contributing mediums that form a sculpture or wall art.
