From Simon Fensholm’s distinct, swirling strokes, vulnerable portraits and scenes emerge. The oil painter, based in Copenhagen, creates works that are both expressive and observant, finding a humanity in their otherworldly forms.
“Fensholm´s work presents itself as an investigation of the constructed authenticity and the controlled chaos that, like a life jacket, permits us to float on top of the imperfect and vulnerable. It points out what makes us perishable creatures. The paintings are like an expressive documentary which creates a coherent voyeuristic portrait of the modern human being and its time where an understated fragility and poesy hide just underneath the surface.”
