Sven Froekjaer-Jensen                                           The hidden Pages. 

In this electronic world with the substance being a mixture of concrete elements and immaterial dreams I some years ago started an artistic project consisting of real contact symbolised primaraly with the shaking of hands in connection of my work as a painter with juried exhibitions, solo shows and group exhibitions. This part of my work is happily still under construction and not open to the general public. If you have reached this page, it might be because you are a real person shown on one of the pictures, and in that case I want to thank you for your participation, support and help. I feel very grateful for the kindness and help given to me. 

If you have found this page all by yourself, I just want to congratulate you.Well done. You can find out more about this specific project by writing to me. And just remember what George Carlin said: Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music.
