Art: Poe  by Artist Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith
This is my latest painting - it combines both 2-dimensional painted elements as well as 3-dimensional sculptural/molding elements! Not only is it a stunning original acrylic painting - it also has an ORIGINAL "Strangeling Frame"! The frame was handcrafted and hand-cast by myself & Matty - in fact the frame itself contains three of my 3-d wide eyed beauties. This painting is an illustration for an upcoming book of short stories! Her name is "Poe" - a character in the book - she has a steampunk flair, living in a neo-Victorian world combining fairytale whimsy with arcane technology. I've painted poe in a fantastic scene, airship in the distance, bizarre gadgets and goggles in hand. Distant factories steam industry in the background, as Poe haunts the local trainstation. There is a phenomenal amount of detail in this piece, I'm very proud of it. She is on a gothic-style peaked wood panel (masonite) with a stunning carved wood and cast resin frame. The framing/panel almost looks like something you'd see in a Renaissance or Medieval art museum - much like an old altar piece. The frame is actually part of the panel itself -combining the 3-dimensional characters along with the painting on the panel. At the top of the frame is a magnificent ornate casting featuring an art nouveau style ornament of one of my Strangeling girls, and there are multiple cast resin Strangelings clutching cast resin cogs, gears, and other clockwork bits (all part of the sculpture cast in lightweight resin). Other details enhance the framing, which is all a hand-painted (by me!) aged/antiqued brass patina. It is about 25" high and 17" wide, and the ornamentation on the frame is probably about an inch or two thick. It is READY TO HANG! I am so happy I am able to start creating works like these, and by collaborating with my husband and his workshop, I truly have made my dream a reality, especially now that we are branching into TRULY original frames!
