Jasmine Matus creates jewellery, object and art from her remote studio in Western Australia.
Much of Jasmine’s work is experimental in terms of materials and techniques used, scale and concepts applied. It is this consistent experimentation that opens up doors for new possibilities of making. Jewellery is a very personal and intimate medium and it is through this exploration and development that the relationship she has with her work and it’s context in the world grows.
An avid collector of interesting and colourful bits and pieces, eyes ever trained on her detailed environment on the look out for the next unusual found object, trinket or gift from nature waiting to be remodelled and lovingly transformed into wearable art.
The acknowledgement and acceptance that life is transient and the not knowing what is around the corner guides her deeper into the present moment of focusing on what she is making and allows for a fluidity and grace in the work she creates. Jasmine sees her creative making as a form of meditation, calming and grounding.
