Jacob Brostrup’s oil paintings overlay backdrops and scenes, creating dreamlike journeys into the subconscious. Figures and the natural world blend with both unruliness and precision, carefully crafted works that make use of the artist’s talents with color and depth.
“The motifs in Brostrup’s image universe are composed of elements from different spaces and worlds, often inside and out,” a statement says, as translated. “The motives are placed on each other side by side inside each other – always with a new angle. They are, with a musical expression, “sampled” as in a musical composition. Compiled realities that basically have nothing to do with each other, but still seem to affect each other.”
Work by the Denmark-born, Spain-based artist has been shown across the globe, including Barcelona, Toronto, and beyond. See more of the artist’s work below.
