Steampunk Carousel

- by Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith

This week's theme: It's a Matter of Time

Steampunk is not easily defined. It's a social movement. It's a burgeoning sub-culture that encompasses art, music, fiction, fashion, lifestyle, creation, and imagination with an aesthetic that is rooted in the 19th century's technologies, sciences, and possibilities. Steampunk is not a re-creation of the past; it is history altered. It speculates on our present and its inventions, but created with the technologies and craftsmanship from the age of steam. It looks at the history drawn through a lens of modern sensibilities. It blends time, and it creates its own. Steampunk is the past, the present, the future, and a place in time that exists outside of all three.

Art: Steampunk Carousel by Artist Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith
"Steampunk Carousel" BIG 36"x24" original acrylic painting on masonite This is the unframed print version. The actual painting is now being framed by Matt in a multi-panel triptych frame he's building currently! A steampunk carousel! All kinds of clockwork and steam power are running this magical carousel. A lovely girl rides a carousel horse in the central panel, and the outer two panels feature a seahorse and a Jackon's chameleon. I love this one, it was so fun to paint (and huge!). A tremendous amount of detail in this one! The original painting itself will be at the Celebration Spring Art Festival,
