Brooklyn-based artist Jasmine Clarke says of her practice, "This is why I photograph: to capture a trace of the unexplainable. My pictures are where dreams meet the physical world and earthly things take on higher meaning. I search for the uncanny. I uncover what is hidden. An obscured face, a wet flower, a dark shadow." In Garden at Night vivid flowers and bright green grasses inexplicably bloom and grow against the night sky, creating a surreal meeting of night and day. As with many of Clarke's photographs, this image transports viewers into a kind of fantasy, where mysticism and the natural world start to blur, weaving a narrative without a definitive end.

Jasmine Clarke is a photographer whose work is inspired by the historical links between nature and mysticism, and her images focus on the surreal qualities of our waking world. She holds a BA from Bard College and her work has been exhibited at spaces such as Blue Sky Gallery, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, and Howard Greenberg Gallery.
