Sticks and Stones
Stick and Stones is a solo presentation by NYC and New Jersey based artist Jasmine Baksh. Jasmine’s autobiographical sculptures are inspired by her own memories and experiences dealing with her past. Her selection of common objects she chooses to sculpt are drawn directly from her memory as she manipulates their function to create a new meaning.
