Jonas Fisch

Born in a small fisherman’s village in southern Sweden, Jonas Fisch is based in Los Angeles and Tulsa. Jonas has exhibited across California, in New York, Chicago, Switzerland and Hong Kong. His paintings can be found in private collections all over the globe.

As a fundamentally introspective person I have an explosive need to express, communicate and reflect my innermost thoughts and feelings. Painting allows me to explore my own subconscious, examine and confront my own experiences. I usually don't have a preconceived idea, but rather a strong notion or vision of what I want to create. Like a sponge I try to soak up inspiration from all around. Sometimes it’s daily life, literature, film, music, past or present events that become vibrant, buzzing reflections and commentary on society expressed in colorful figures, words and shapes. Other times it's personal experiences and emotions that flood my mind and spill onto the canvas. I paint in a personal original language with a jazz-like spontaneity and my process is instinctive and organic, the paintings energetic and vibrant emerging from my subconscious without judgment, being put together by feelings trying to find a harmony in an imaginary universe. Endless metaphors, messages, layers and symbols move in and out of focus as your eyes explore my puzzle pieces with multiple solutions. You’ll see a face, then struggle to find it again as the same shapes become the arm of a larger character, letters in a cryptic word, poem or clusters of stars and trapezoids. It’s like wringing out a sponge and I try not to judge or censor what comes up. At a certain point the painting takes on a life of it's own and reveals itself. It's the point of no return and I have no choice but to paint it.
