JEFF IBBO  -  ARTIST STATEMENT:

In 1979, I threw myself into a restless naturalistic theme of painting nature and humans, without any particular style. It led me back into an expressively figure painting, with roots in the Flemish ekspressionime (De Smet and Permeke) and Danish artists like Heerup. There is colored outlines around shapes, and large homogeneous surfaces. New debut in 86 at Charlottenborg, and KE91, and an entire wall with self-portraits

in the Ministry of Culture Exhibition Hall in Overgaden 93, together with Flemming Born and Steffen Sølberg. The colored contour disappeared gradually from the mid -90s, to be reborn as an often thin line shape that is tightly composed into the picture surface, and it was very textural, like the pictures I tried to paint in the early sixties. In some very large images, ca. 2 meters in height, I have worked even more with the purely physical painting, directly opposite models. Recently the colored contour is  resurfaced again as a more luminous marking of the figure that preserves the figurative impression and opens for more abstraction.
