TEJN arbejder progressivt med det skulpturelle medie. Med sine figurative jernskulpturer har han med et nyskabende udtryk, slået sig fast i dansk samtidskunst, som en fokuseret og retningsbevidst kunstner.

Som skulptør formår TEJN at inkludere sit publikum i sine svejsede værker. Med et organisk formsprog fjerner han beskuerens fokus fra det hårde materialevalg, og ophæver på den måde metallets iboende tunge væsen.

TEJN´s jernskulpturer markerer sig med en umiddelbar udpræget råhed, men overrasker med en detaljerigdom, som gavmildt multipliceres ved mængden af opmærksomhed...

Raw iron works compellingly well for Danish artist TEJN. His sculptures are made from recycled iron, which he roughly welds together creating objects within a figurative sphere. The sculptures appear powerful and unpolished. To the trained eye TEJNs work may refer to the grand Danish sculptor Robert Jacobsen, who was celebrated for working with raw iron in the ‘50s and ‘60s. TEJN wants to bring the iron media to a new and contemporary stage of artwork.

TEJN finds metal scrap for his sculptures and uses some of it in its original form. The rest is created into figurative objects that express a narrative deadopen for interpretation.

 

“When making my sculptures I try to see people as they are, and not only the trained version of how they want to be,” says TEJN in connection to explaining his drive for the figurative.

 

The underlying honest self that comes forward when people lose their facades inspires the artist. He appreciates how the loss of self-control develops a new transparent world, which he builds into his works.
