Jesper Skov Madsen

  • Biography

    Jesper Skov Madsen creates what you could call sculptural paintings - with oil sticks he builds the skeleton - the oil paint forms the body. Like a puzzle, he impulsively pieces the painting together, without a sketch he feels his way forward, with changing movements - from fast to slow. Without a fixed motif, he slowly lets the work take shape. In a mixture of neat precision and chance, the painting comes to life - through canvas, oil sticks and paint – in a counterplay and interplay between the texture and colors of the different materials. The process is a balance between the perfect and the imperfect; to surrender to the unpredictable and at the same time create direction and take control. It is a mixture of contemplation, meditation, curiosity and understanding the colors in relation to each other, and creating boundaries, division and fusion.
