Petter ZENNSTRÖM

1945, Sweden

Also known as: PZ

Name: Petter ZENNSTRÖM
Birth: 1945

Petter Zennström's oeuvre includes several of the arts core functions in society. It reveals, concerns and upsets. Zennström uses an in many ways unique combination of abstraction and representation, which sometimes take purely organic forms, with which he reduces the world into a micro cosmos where chaos often reigns. Zennström's motifs show an artist with a strong and sincere commitment against social, political and economic injustice. The work creeps under the skin of the viewer thanks to the tense mood and the black humor. Zennström's humor works more clarifying than evasive, which contributes to the agitative direction of his artistry.

More recently, the direct political and ideological references have given way for a more implicit agenda and a more abstract imagery. The works do nonetheless still hold references to a world order that is often difficult to come to terms with. The insights Petter Zennström’s art offers is rarely pleasant, but oh so important, both emotionally and intellectually. The strong pathos and warm humanism that Zennström represents is rarely seen but ever so needed.

Petter Zennström slog igenom på 1970-talet med starkt politiska bilder med ett särpräglat och eget bildspråk. På 1980- och 90-talen övergick han till ett mer abstrakt och ornamenterande bildspråk men med bibehållen styrka och särart.
