Lundh Jonas

Through my work, I wish to propose a description of the mood in our world.
"During a rainy day in Lisbon we found a gallery where we could shelter during a heavy shower. I had never been introduced to this new way to expose and sell artworks. This was the first time I had been in a Carré d´Artistes gallery. I was hooked, I just had to find out more…..and here I am!" Art and music are two inseparable and indispensable pillars in the life of Jonas. A drummer and percussionist, he began first of all, in the eighties, as an independent jazz musician. Gradually, he developed a passion for painting and taught himself. He quickly made the connection with music and decided to keep in mind the two characteristics that he likes and wants to "print" on his canvases: harmony and rhythm. A "photographic" reproduction of the world does not interest him, he prefers Impressionism.
For fifteen years, he has been using a technique in which pieces of cardboard of different sizes take the place of brushes. This technique enables him to create specific reliefs and strokes, as well as solid areas with varied densities. The works have less clarity and more abstraction. But in this way he wants to offer the viewer more space, more freedom to freely interpret the work. In this way Jonas builds on his canvases unreal and dreamlike worlds with warm and soft colours, punctuated with great balance. One of his main sources of inspiration is the Nordic light and a kind of melancholy, but which he sees positively. When starting a painting he likes to remember memories and impressions of his childhood and his travels.
