ABOUT the exhibition
Björkholmen Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition with new works by Daniel Jensen. This marks his fourth solo presentation with the gallery. Over the past decade Jensen has gained recognition for his works in complex layered compositions that convey an orderly chaos. The paintings are deeply rooted in his drawings. The exhibition will feature a new series of work that is dominated by abstract linear energetic configurations. Titles associate to fireworks, volcanic eruption and orbit traces. An organic landscape of moving materia. “Balancing between static composition and a feeling of constant movement, they grab hold of the beholder only to step by step unfold layers of meaning. (…) Chaos seems to imply that there is no order. But the painting rather suggests that order is a state in the chaotic, passing through. (…) What Daniel Jensen’s paintings remind us of, is that we need to simultaneously think in the relevance of the act of painting, both in terms of becoming and in terms of communicating. Jensen is balancing the act of painting to his personal history as an artist, leaving visible residues of his own visual language”. Håkan Nilsson, excerpt from the book Daniel Jensen, Current Events
