Jasmin Schaschl is a visual artist based in Vienna.
Her artistic practice is based on screen printing in combination with a variety of other techniques and media. A constant interplay between the intentional and the accidental is characteristic for the artist’s process.More recently, she has explored the juxtaposition of different surfaces and textures, moving between harmony and friction.
In this ongoing series each artwork is composed of two separately printed screenprints, either in black and white or built up of layers of patterns – initially paintings and drawings with ink – in different colours. By mounting two prints under a hand cut mat the prints enhance each other and form a harmonious unity at the same time.
The shape of the mats give the pieces a monolithic character, whereas the surface itself invites the viewer to have a closer look at underlying layers of colours, patterns and marks.
Each artwork is unique.
