Marlou Jaspers Art

I got asked if I wanted to participate in this big yearly art event in Nora where they fill the whole town with art and culture. So I exhibited some of my older works in their library!

I got selected to exhibit some of my works at Katrineholms Decembersalong. It was a great day getting to meet really inspiring people and artists whom some of them now also have become good friends of mine. And another great result of this opportunity is that I sold one of my oldies! This series of little portraits has been with me for a couple of years and meant a lot to my artistry. They were pretty much a start of something new for me. Or even something real, I could say. The exhibition itself was really well put together, it is so interesting to see so many different type of styles come together in one room. I am happy I was a part of it. Here are some pictures of it!

Here are some pictures from the latest exhibition I had at Exposé in Örebro! It went very smooth, the hanging went very well and the exhibition itself was a great success! I titled it "Oxymoron", focusing on the back and forth, contradictory and somewhat destructive relationship we have with nature. 

It is like an irresistible desire and at the same time a necessarity to even be able to take a breath. But we ignore the trusting hand that our partner reaches out to us and take advantage of that position of power. They say that we get happier from giving rather than taking, but I have to doubt if that constantly goes both ways. We worship nature but we seem to worship ourselves just a little bit more. Not really realizing where this takes us. We want to go one direction and nature another. So we choose to swerve onto an artificial road meanwhile a flower tries to reach for the sun through the asphalt. Where we walk and get to smell a scent of a lovely mixture of lavender and exhaust. Or a bit further away where we get a peek of a fragment of plastic bottles if we lift the oil-covered blanket of waves. But if we don't lift it it doesn't exist, right? We make use of, take advantage of, and affect nature, but in the end, who is really the most vulnerable?

"Natural synthetic", the painting in the foreground was more or less the start for the concept of this exhibition!

Expose4
These smaller paintings have an acrylic background with a touch of details in oil.

I got the opportunity to exhibit my art at this big company, Würth, in Örebro. They seemed to be very excited about having it on their walls!
