Jasper Sebastian Stürup works is surrounded by delicateness and fragmentation. By exploring various techniques on canvas and paper the final works become almost ethereal: soft hues of color combined with dynamic outlines of various bodies and objects come together to create an alternative interpretation of the world as we see it.

Stürup takes inspiration from the still-life genre, African masks, movies, nature, and poetry. The figures in Stürup’s works often seem lost or without reference point. This perspective can be seen as a way of portraying the many physical and emotional layers of being human.

The ethereal atmosphere is present both in the material of the artwork as well as the themes in Jasper Sebastian Stürup’s works.
