About Jens Fänge
Jens Fänge was born in 1965 in Gothenburg (Sweden). He currently lives and works in Stockholm (Sweden).
Our clues to a coherent narrative are multiplied, yet their ambiguity remains. The location of the paintings is just as hard to define. Their contents is just as obscure, but as plainly presented as always. The lustre of the objects fixes them in the spatiality of the painting, in relation to the seductively overlapping colour planes that hover like crystals in their own dimension. In Fänge’s paintings, illusion blends with abstraction. Realistic perspectives co-exist with that of dreams, generating a kind of metaphysical matter-of-factness.
Jens Fänge is represented by Galleri Magnus Karlsson.
