Sven Frøkjær-Jensen has had a very thorough university education as a professionel

 historian, which has been a great advantage for him in his work. He started out with 

a vivid and strong fascination of the Cobra movement, but through his studies of Byzantine

 painting and the art of the native peopleof Bali and Australia, he created for himself

  a new language of art, in which he combines the precise knowledge of his

 medium with the hightest degree of intense artistic espression. He often

 uses unvonventional materials in his works.

Mr. John R. Math director of the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery Jupiter , Florida , USA says in this juror statement from the Gallery:

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery has been most fortunate to have the Danish  artist Sven Froekjaer-Jensen participating in several of their group art exhibitions. Sven is an extraordinary painter who produces wonderfully vibrant abstracts. His paintings interpret his subjective thoughts and deep feelings with bold splashes of color. Besides his brilliant abstracts, our gallery was fortunate to have observed the full range of Sven’s artistic talent when he participated in our “Figurative” exhibition with his classic nude drawing entitled “Tulla”. Sven also was a contributor in our “Landscape” exhibition with his oil painting “Winter” which depicts the harsh winter landscape of his native Denmark .

Overall, we are quite pleased to have Sven as a regular contributor to our art gallery and we follow his art career from afar. Sven will always be a welcomed artist at Light Space & Time Online Gallery.  

Curator Carolus Stoop, director of Gallery Zero, writes:

It is a great pleasure for me to announce, that it has been possible for galleri Zero to persuade the Danish artist Sven Froekjaer-Jensen to participate in our exhibition at the Instituto Cervantes, 211 East 49th Street , NY 10017 , New York , USA from the 4. of November to the 8. of November 2013.

I have chosen Sven Froekjaer-Jensen because of his outstanding qualities as an artist both concerning his technical mastership, his freedom of expression and his very unique work with the old structures of mankind in his brilliant paintings.

The exhibition is in collaboration with the Cervantes Institute of New York and Sven Froekjaer-Jensen has been selected together with 17 other international artists.

I know that Sven Froekjaer-Jensen is a very succesfull and busy artist with a fresh new attitude towards art and its modern expressions and I am looking very much forward to the cooperation in New York with this fine Danish artist.
