Jakob Oksbjerg (b. 1984) works primarily within the medium of painting although he also incorporates elements of wood-carving, soft-sculpture and textile production into his practice. Frequently deriving the imagery for his works from extended periods of meditation, or from oneiric visions experienced on the verge of sleep, Oksbjerg’s paintings demonstrate a broad interest in mythic symbolism and pre-historical methods of signification. Oksbjerg’s approach to the figure is largely archetypal and unidentified men and women often appear situated within expansive and atmospheric landscapes. Oksbjerg favours an expressive approach towards colour and much of his work is grounded in a quietly intense palette of earth tones, lush vegetative greens and pulsing ultramarines. An ambition towards holiness, or at least a strong impression of spirituality is consistently detectable and Oksbjerg has at-times engaged with overtly Christian iconography (albeit flittered through an abstract visual lens). More recent works have engaged with semi-fictional narratives surrounding the archeological discovery of several mysterious artifcacts; re-imaginging the appearance of these largely undocumented objects throught a process of “para-psychological” visualisation, Oksbjerg’s practice foregrounds the influential power of the human body as a tool for visualisation and manifestation.
