Jesper Palm

"My paintings can be considered riddles without solutions, staged tableaux that transport and cause wonder, a new land where anything can happen. Looking for something that can never quite be grasped, we circle but can't pin it down. Yet we try, again and again, gaining a bit more insight, perhaps, with each new turn. Like questions with no ready answers. Which may be exactly what modern painting can do."

Jesper Palm's paintings are existential in nature. A reckoning with reason, they draw us into a seemingly familiar universe that, on closer inspection, is revealed to have no rational coherence: A landscape that never quite gels. A structure, perhaps architecture, that does not hold anything together. Night and day at once. Time and space are eliminated, objects dislodged from their immediate logic, making room for the viewer to contribute her own views, reflections and longings.
