Jasmine Targett reviewed by The Sydney Morning Herald

Today I found out I was reviewed twice by the Sydney Morning Herald! and I had no idea.... It is a lovely thing to be seen and heard as an artist and I am chuffed that its starting to happen at a National level. I am so grateful to those of you that have reached out and let me know your responses to the work - I have been overwhelmed and humbled. Thanks heaps guys!! Now onto the business of things... excerpts from the articles!

From  Dylan Rainforth's article on June 17, 2014 - 'Space: Around the Galleries- Fear of the future' 

"Jasmine Targett, has used NASA satellite data to represent the ozone hole – and the invisible terror of anthropogenic environmental harm – as a human-scaled, realistically iceberg-shaped sculpture. Because, like an iceberg, it’s what we can’t see that we should be afraid of."

And From Dan Rule's article on June 22, 2014 - 'In the Galleries - Innovators 1'
"Britt Salt and Jasmine Targett’s sculptural installations are highlights. While Salt’s vast canopies of geometrically arranged rubber lines draw our attention to the dynamics of space and our journey through it, Targett’s mountainous sculpture – created using layers of Perspex – forms a prism of shifting, changing colour."
