Artist Statement

Jakob Anckarsvärd’s work is richly influenced by psychology and existentialism
as a product of work and volunteer experience, in addition to academic studies.
References to art history and theory are often present even though the expression
and language used have a grounded and humanist approach.

Anckarsvärd works mainly with painting, installation and artist’s books which all
complement each other as materials and processes. The expressions vary quite a bit
and the work is performed in a swift, expressive style, however all gestures and
unconventional materials are given extensive consideration.

Anckarsvärd is not anxious of working in neither sombre colours nor dark subject matters,
though continuously working towards optimistic solutions. This form is vital in the artwork,
and integrated in his general practice. In order to move forwards it’s necessary to truly
challenge yourself, which sometimes means breaking conventions and rules.
Although Anckarsvärd’s art is in constant change and devolvement, he believes in long term
work in order to turn private fascinations into profound outcome.
