Jürgen Asp is a versatile artist and a man who has experienced a lot in life, that cuts both ways. Large paintings of human bodies to small nonfigurative watercolours, dedicated to his deceased daughter Klara, bear witness to some of his experiences and to how he processes them in his art.
Jürgen Asp is and has always been curious, he wants to test and see what he can manage and that is one of the explanations of his versatility.
The sea, nature with water, islets and rocks are in fact Jürgen Asp ́s most important circle of motifs. He loves the sea and to be onboard his sailingboat Nanuk. He likes to paint wet in wet, and layer upon layer, and is fascinated by how the colour pigments live.
During the course of years, Jürgen Asp has found that he by preference uses the watercolour technique. It is a sketching technique as well as a tool for downright creation of pictures. For a long period of time, he worked franticaly to find the feeling he was looking for in the colour. To be able to express what he wanted to say.
