JASPER SEBASTIAN STÜRUP
Jasper Sebastian Stürup’s works have seduction as the focal point. The immediately sensual is activated by the sensual selection of material like pink satin, shining and soft to the eye, lures us into his drawn and picturesque universe. Contrary to the earlier drawings, where there is a complex figuration with a myriad of people and objects, the new paintings are more simplified in the motifs. The motifs of the works can be seen as a kind of emotional accumulation of references to humans and the human sculpture throughout history. Inspired by his surroundings as well as a from other artists, musicians and poets, performance art-ists and renaissance sculptures to African masks and totem poles, Stürup’s works functions as sculptural statements that identify the poetic in human actions, artistic statements and communication.
