About The Artist
Jonas Löfgren uses the simplicity of pencil on paper to deftly create dreamlike, somber and haunting images. He approaches these drawings in a collage-like way, "abandoned houses and warped perspectives, old forests, bare trees, abstract geometric shapes, animals, and solitary pale human figures comes together to form fragments of a bigger story." Lofgren notes, "The drawings show glimpses of a scene, there is a sense that something is going on under the surface and that the figures are heading for an uncertain destination."
Löfgren has chronicled a unique creation in an imaginary world filled with an air of foreboding and mystery, the plight of his characters is emphasized with an eerily whimsical and childlike charm. In Löfgren's words, "I think of my work as a continuum, an ongoing narrative that tend to explore various aspects of silence and solitude in a world which is increasingly loud."
Born 1979 in Umeå, Sweden, Jonas Löfgren currently lives and works in Stockholm. The artist has exhibited internationally numerous times, most notably with Rivet Gallery in Cleveland, OH and Richard Goodall Gallery in the UK.
