Jette Jertz's works emerge from presence. Based on informal painting, she seeks an analytical and painterly solution in relation to art history, current affairs and the individuality of the artist. The plurality of artistic forms of expression is viewed as a gift and as a challenge not to lose oneself in the superficial.
Coming to terms with a choice related to one's actual identity is essential in her work. This is not about either informal painting or conceptual painting, but about bringing together the pictorial plurality with one's own spirit based on individual choice.
