Jasmine Thomas-Girvan's Art – The Photos

Her work is exceptional. But you don't need me to tell you that. Let the photos speak for themselves ...

'THE UPPER ROOM'
from Jasmine Thomas-Girvan's Resonance collection

'THE MESSAGE'
from Jasmine Thomas-Girvan's Resonance collection
The piece of string hanging down from the hand bears the message,
'Open your eyes and look within'.

'WHAT WE HAVE DONE AND WHAT WE HAVE LEFT UNDONE'
from Jasmine Thomas-Girvan's Resonance collection:
The long tongue says 'I do not recall'.
Most Jamaicans will immediately catch the
ironic symbolism of this.

In the pocket is a measuring stick that says, 'Truth and ile nebba drown',
translated, "truth and oil never drown" - another witty piece of symbolism
that most Jamaicans would pick up on.
