Jeppe lauge (born 1980 in east Jutland) is a Danish artist, living and working in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He studied at Århus kunsthøjskole and Ærø kunsthøjskole in Denmark before moving to Amsterdam in 2008 where he did The Gerrit Rietveld Academy (fine arts).



The paintings of Jeppe Lauge are built up through various layers of oil paint on canvas overlaid and infiltrated with charcoal drawing. He works in a technique where he assembles multiple nature images and geometric forms and patterns, which together create a space (landscape) that then consists of a dualism between different elements and media. They become pictures into a psychological, interpretively or imagined space, rather than depicting an actual reality. But at the same time the paintings draw links to the architectural, cultural and social conditions of the present time. They reflect the way we shape our environment and get shaped by it. The paintings are not only about the romantic or aesthetic cultivation of nature’s grandeur, but of an intermediated nature where realism and geometrical abstraction infiltrate to form a new composition.
