Jasmine Gregory (b. 1987, Washington DC) is a Zürich-based artist whose paintings work satirically with absurd notions of identity, subjectivity, and consumption through abstraction and figuration. She is interested in exploring hyperbolic motifs within traditional parameters, pushing deeply into illusionistic and distorted space. Gregory’s style and technique moves between academicism and amateurism, seriousness and playfulness. This oscillation creates unconventional relationships within composition that not only challenge and critique the traditional discourse of painting, but also disrupt conventional, cis-white visual symbolic orders in hyper-theatrical ways. HBIC or Head Bitch In Charge depicts an imagined character with long green acrylic nails laying out the Facts. Gregory toys satirically with the idea of representation in figurative painting as a performative act as a parallel to performative activism, namely circulating facts via social media for activist purposes. Her works have been exhibited at Les Urbaines (CH), Kunsthalle Zürich (CH), Karma International (CH,), and Park View/ Paul Soto (BXL/LA) among others. She also participated in “Reimagining the Museum: Open Letters and a Decolonial Framework” a roundtable discussion hosted by the Hammer Museum (US).
