Olav Christopher Jenssen

Production Year




The works in “Panorama Second Generation” refer back to a previous generation of paintings with the same title (from 2008-09), thus being an example of Jenssen’s returning to, and continuing of earlier series. The Panorama series is characterized by its striking compositions and constellations, ranging between static contemplative calm and thrilling journeys in a warped world where unexpected spaces and horizons appear. The fields in the Panorama paintings, with their own inner logic, mirror both an abstract world and an ability to see beyond the canvas (Text from Galleri Riis)
