Jazmin Wilkins is a Brisbane-based emerging artist who creates acrylic and mixed-media works exploring our connection to the environment. With untouched areas of nature her biggest inspiration, Jazmin invites the viewer to consider the beauty of our environment in an age of rapid land development, and reflect on the unspoken damage we have done to our ecosystem.
Trained as a Printmaker, Jazmin's work in this medium has explored extensively the concept of human impact on the environment. This experience has continued into many of her current bodies of work, with the lack of human influence in many of her landscapes often interpreted as a form of social commentary, a reflection on the effects of humankind on the planet.
Layers and obscured marks infiltrate all aspects of Jazmin’s work, hinting at hidden meanings and unspoken messages relating to our relationship with the environment. The smallest notion of nature – clouds, leaves, water lapping against the sand – can serve as reminders of our impact on Earth.
In 2012 Jazmin graduated from Griffith University's Queensland College of Art with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art, majoring in Interdisciplinary Print Media. She continued studying and graduated from the University of Queensland with a Postgraduate Diploma in Art (Art History Major) in 2014.
