Colorful Dimensions

At The Ode To we are always curious to learn more about creativity and artistry, so we asked Jasmine Børresen to tell us a little bit about her life, her art and her sources of inspiration.


What do you call your series of artworks?

'Acrylic Clouds' is the name of my series, an homage to the recurring clouds that have followed me for many years.

What technique have you used?

– I've employed the impasto technique using acrylic paints.

What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?

– During the COVID period, I took a break from creating artworks. After the birth of my daughter, she became my inspiration to resume my artistic journey. Art for me is about letting go and having fun. I wanted to experiment with a more sculptural approach to painting, amplifying 'the painterly gestures'.

Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?

– My Norwegian-Thai heritage influences my work, encouraging me to blend techniques and terminologies, thereby creating something novel and boundary-pushing. Exploring materials, thoughts, and interactions excites me. I've completed two years at a preliminary art school and obtained a bachelor's from Bergen Art Academy in Norway. Working creatively was expected of me, and now I flow with that inclination.

How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?

– Intuitive, tactile, painterly.

What we love about JASMINE BØRRESEN:

Jasmine's ability to intertwine sculptural elements into her paintings showcases her innovative and playful approach to art, inviting viewers into a realm where experimentation meets tradition.
