Jasmine Bradbury (b 1994) is a British sculptor based in Norwich. She graduated with first class honours in Fine Art at Norwich University of Art (2015). She has previously exhibited at Anteros Gallery (solo), Waveney Valley Sculpture Trail in Suffolk and Fieldworks gallery in London (solo). Jasmine’s work explores notions of the self through formations of objects and materials of familiar origin. Working primarily with large sculptural forms, her work is often based on feminized interpretations of life incidents, alongside the psychological theories of Sigmund Freud and the later writings of Meliene Klien in relation to the expressions of anxiety and depression. Delicate or strong, malleable or rigid, comforting or banal - Jasmine Bradbury’s sculptures are full of contradictions in both materiality and form. Representing life’s unknown trajectory, the forms and materials work side by side to explore feelings of stability and instability. The weight and fragility depicted in each piece and their subsequent layers, highlights both a surface emotion and the everyday anxieties we swallow in a suffocated and somewhat silent state. In the most recent works Jasmine utilizes industrial materials with minimal and natural colourations, like plaster, lead and resin. Bradbury choses forms such as the pillow, bath or mattress that juxtaposes the illusion of domestic familiarities to then relate it back to the self. Jasmine has been exploring materials that reflect her expanding sculptural vocabulary since working with a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors, Brian Alabaster, from March 2016.
