Bent Karl Jacobsen

Bent Karl Jacobsen's earliest works attracted attention, especially the blue collages, Dukkerier. Already there was the ambiguous character that characterizes many later works. Landscapes where trees seem cut into cardboard and where parks and roads are human, continue the sense of a world undergoing degradation, which began with the graphic series from 1972. Bent Jacobsen has made extensive use of screen printing in his graphic work , which has allowed the use of color and shape with the greatest possible painting effect. The serial repetition of banal motifs is characteristic, often the same motif is used both negatively and positively, or the same motif within the other.
