Off Square by Jasmin Coleman.
Coleman’s hybrid practice shifts between painting, sculpture and more recently large scale participatory installations. Jasmin typically employs inherently robust industrial materials and refashions them to emphasize material integrity and/or structural integrity. Conceptually, Coleman is interested in how primary materials and readymade objects can be used to discuss individual and mass societal value systems.
Jasmin Coleman completed a diploma of Visual Arts at Southbank Institute of Technology in 2003, and studied a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Queensland College of Art in 2005. Coleman has since been curated into many local and interstate exhibitions. She was selected to participate in The Jump National Mentoring Program (2010) and was a top 10 finalist in the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards (2010) and The Churchie National Emerging Art Exhibition (2009). In 2011 Jasmin toured her site responsive installation 'Stabilisers' nationally, funded by Arts Queensland. Recent artworks include ‘Chaos Shields’ (2012) and “Inverted System,’ a temporary public artwork which was displayed at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Busway as part of the Museum of Brisbane’s ‘Platform’ Program.
