Swedish artist, Jenny Lundgren, creates moody, semi-abstract portraits that draw on the viewer’s emotions with her painterly, purposeful markmaking.


”These portraits deal more with emotions and moods than with actual people or objects,” says Jenny. ”I am not at all interested in details when I paint; I work with big gestures, I try to be fearless, I reduce and distill. I strive to find a form for each painting that is at the same time simple but also powerful, to find some kind of essence.”


Moving between figuration and abstraction, Jenny uses the human form as a boundary meant to be broken with the freedom of abstraction, where she uses her intuition to move paint on canvas or paper. ”My painting process is quite physical and as I paint I move the canvas between wall and floor, over and over again. Theese changes of perspective and working position helps me in a very concrete way not to get stucked in some idea, but to find and see other, new possibilities for each and every painting.”
