“He challenges in his unique way the tension between the functional design object and non-functional art. Because of his love and attention for matter, he creates synergies between distinct types of objects that meet each other in a contemporary sculptural language of shapes.” S. Vanderstichelen

 

Jørgen’s simple approach to marble as a stone sculptor translated into works on canvas. He uses a simple direct technique by applying acrylics with a single stroke without using a brush on the canvas. With a continuous movement, he leaves traces of thin layers of paint which creates a remarkable 3D effect.

 

Jørgen has worked as a sculptor and painter for over 20 years and has experience in many disciplines. His background as a graphic designer influenced his work, which is highlighted by his use of clearly defined and stylized shapes.

 

Jorgen is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and in Carrara, Italy.
