Agnes Jorgensen’s Artist’s Statement: “My art is inspired by life, by the people around me and by all that is us. And most importantly, my art is inspired by the strong calling of my heart to take those subtle ideas from deep within and bring them to life on canvas. My contemporary figurative oil paintings combine Old-Master techniques of layering rich, vibrant, colors and soft gestures to reveal illuminating effects. Throughout the buildup of each layer I strive to create an expression of feminine softness within my art to communicate emotion, a sense of harmony, depth and texture.”
