Daniel Jensen

Daniel Jensen´s sculptures, paintings and drawings often explore issues of contemporary society and nature in decline. The works deal with subjects like alienation, failure and transformation. A patchwork of references and techniques along with myths gives life to a series of characters and a personal universe. This universe has the semblance of a depraved fairytale where humour and deep sincerity are entwined and unconstrained, placing the spectator in an odd state of laughter and contemplation. Jensen alternates between the figurative and the abstract where the various elements are not related in any narrative sense. In his recent works the volatile moment is lifted, what was previously in the background has now been moved forward.
