“I study the impressions that come towards me. When I observe nature I see it as if it was for the first time.”
Jenny-Marie Johnsen lives and works in Tromsø, Norway. She was educated at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen.
Jenny-Marie uses nature as her point of departure and operates in the borderlands between painting and photography. She wishes to retain the quality of the original photography and the reference to nature at the same time as highlighting the work’s painterly qualities. The intention is to bring new dimensions of reality through the works. Her art has been included at exhibitions in Europe and the US. She is represented in the art collection at Troll Station Antarctica, Arts Council Norway, among others.
