Jenny Carlsson Biography

photo: Jenny Carlsson

Born in Ronneby, Sweden 1984 | Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden


Hailing from the sparsely populated locale of Southern Sweden, Jenny Carlsson renders deserted landscapes as inspired by her hometown’s natural surroundings. She transfers her memories to our retina through works of layered paint and expressive brush strokes. Torpid woodlands, swamps, and roots take center stage in Carlsson’s abstract depictions of nature.


Carlsson graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in 2013 from Umeå Academy of Fine Arts in Sweden. Her works have been on exhibition at Kalmar Art Museum, Umeå Art Museum, and at Malmö Konsthall. Her works are found in several collections, including the Västerbotten Museum, Helge Lindensin and Blekningen foundation, and others.


Galerie Forsblom has been representing Jenny Carlsson since 2014.
