At first glance, Swedish artist Jens Fänge’s body of work seems to be a fusion of early 20th-century collage and shadow play. It is predominated by paintings within paintings, and encompasses various genres, such as portraits and city- and landscapes, combined with geometric abstraction. Fänge subverts the ostensible order and clarity of his surfaces by injecting layers of dynamism, whether through flat, patterned fields or perspectives that challenge the eye. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition of his paintings at the Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm, and features numerous plates along with a critical essay by curator Magnus af Petersens, plus a conversation with the artist.
