Jonas Nemeth’s paintings tell a variety of stories which reflect an autobiographical vision.
Inspired by seminal figures such as Francis Bacon and Dante Alighieri, as well as innovators from his native Sweden, each composition communicates a specific emotion, often through an experimentation in oils.
Nemeth explains: “I want to interpret and communicate a specific feeling in my art which is influenced by my background in film, my writing and my history studies, a mixture that is reflected in my art. I want the viewer to ask questions about the art such as: What happened before or after? Why is the character positioned that way? What is the person thinking about and why are they in that situation?”
