Jack Lundsdal`s anxious and wildly emotive, colorful canvases were a shocking evocation of the complex of feeling from which ”children`s tales” like Andersen`s always seem to spring.” Thank you and best wishes from the Mayor`s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs in Seattle.

American art outgrew its long European apprenticeship in the years after the Second World War, and at this point of departure gave the American artist the chance to generate so much inspiration that a mature and distinctly individual style emerged to the developement of abstract expressionism. It was Jackson Pollock who broke the ice, the breakthrough surely dates from the winter of 1946-47, when Pollock first articulated his canvases with all over webs of poured paint.
Jack Lundsdal was born in Copenhagen December 13,1936, and departet from Denmark and travelled to U.S.A. in the Spring of 1948. Starting with his studies at the age of 12 attending classes at the "American Academy of Art" in Chicago, later on he recieved an scholarship to Art Center in Los Angeles and after Washington High School Los Angeles that is neighbour to Manual Arts High School where Jackson Pollock also was a student, then on to Grand View College in Des Moines, Lundsdal was now admitted to the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles 1957, the institute was then renamed the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California in 1970. Jack Lundsdal`s first one man show and debut was in 1959 at the age of 23, at the Duncan Vail Galleries in Los Angeles and numerious other exhibits followed in galleries and museums in the State of California and so on in many countries in Europe. But by then in 1966 Lundsdal had travelled back to Denmark to build his own studio with his subconscious motivating cause, the furthering of the innovative movement of abstract expresssionism, this was his real problem, that of growth in his work and ofcourse today he explains, "A man`s work is his signature, and it`s just simply the desire to push further, to go beyond the known visual conceps and a need of openness and freedom".

Udviklingen af Amerikansk kunst efter Anden Verdenskrig voksede ud af en lang Europæisk tradition, her var endelig en side af malerkunsten, som forekom uudforsket, påstrygningen af farve uden interesse for motiv og hensigt. I Frankrig kaldte man udtrykket tachisme, men der var især amerikaneren Jackson Pollock i vinteren 1946-47 som fik sit gennembrud og vakte interesse p.g.a. af sin anvendelse af malingen og skabte en ny retning ved navnet "action painting" eller abtrakt ekspressionisme.
JACK LUNDSDAL er født den 13.December 1936 i København, og rejste fra Danmark til U.S.A. i foråret 1948. Begyndte sine studier som 12 årig ved "The American Academy of Art" i Chicago, senere modtog han et stipendium til Los Angeles Art Center og efter endt uddanelse ved Washington High School Los Angeles der er nabo til Manual Arts High School, skolen som Jackson Pollock studeret ved og videre til Grand View College i Des Moines, kom Lundsdal til Chouinard Art Institute i Los Angeles 1957, som blev omdøbt til California Institute of the Arts grundlagt af Walt Disney i Valencia, Californien i 1970. JACK LUNDSDAL`s første separat udstilling og debut var i 1959 i en alder af 23 år hos Duncan Vail Galleries i Los Angeles samt efterfølgende udstillinger i flere gallerier og museer i Staten Californien og senere i mange Europæiske lande. Men et opbrud i 1966 var trangen til fornyelse og udvikling af bevægelsen abstrakt ekspressionisme samt den samlet ubevidste motivrende årsag til at JACK LUNDSDAL flyttede tilbage til Danmark og byggede sit atelier på Røsnæs. I dag forklarer han at, "Mine udfordringer er som eksistensvilkår med et pendlende blik, fra identifikation til brydninger for det at mase på, komme videre til ukendte sammenhæng i min investering ved stoffet, taget i ed med gestus eller blot signatur".
