Daniel Jensen

Malmö, Sweden, 1972

About

Balancing between static composition and a feeling of constant movement, Jensen’s paintings
grab hold of the beholder only to step by step unfold layers of meaning. They are, so to speak,
easy to get. But at the same time, they are difficult to describe: What unfolds in the process of
interpreting them poses questions that challenges the traditional tropes for describing both painting
as an art form and as individual statements.
