Kristina Jansson – Space, Lost and Found
|Author||A. E. von Hausswolff; A. Olofsson; K. Jansson|
|Publisher||Art And Theory Publishing|
Kristina Jansson’s grand and ambiguous works often deal with the images’ emblematic relationship to human undercurrents and desires, such as money, power, and lust. She is also preoccupied with architectural space, perception, and memory using the painting as a visually seductive construction. Jansson has consistently returned to the question of what she as a painter can create with a medium already so burdened. Maybe this aspect becomes more visible within our age? Nowadays we are so imprinted by the photographic image that a painting in a way always appears to be incomprehensible and strange from where it observes us.
