Olav Christopher Jenssen (1954-) lives and works in Germany, and today he is quite as much a part of the German art world as the Norwegian. He began his career painting figurative pictures, but during the 1980s he created paintings that oscillate between figurative and non-figurative images, without being either or. Neither is he a romantic with a desire to paint the inexpressible, but an artist who is interested in what, in fact, can be conveyed in colour and form, rhythm and brushwork. This said, he also explores the limits of what can be expressed, and his artistic production of graphics, drawings, paintings, relief work and installations throw light on the process that carries expression. Primarily, this takes place on the surface, but disappears into what seems like deep space located far away or far below.
