QB represents Swedish artist Nellie Jonsson

Portrait of the artist by Tor Simen Ulstein / KUNSTDOK

It is with great delight that we announce QBs representation of Nellie Jonsson.

Nellie Jonsson (b. 1992, Umeå, Sweden) is an emerging artist working primarily with ceramic sculpture and installation. She graduated from the Oslo Academy of the Arts with a BFA (2016-2019) and an MFA (2019-2021) in material-based art. Jonsson's figurative body of work communicates with an everyday tone, at the same time as unexpected compositions and elements leave a distinctive mark on the playful expression. By immortalising common objects in clay, Jonsson throws reference to consumer culture and everyday life, shedding light on objects in our lives that we usually don't reflect on. Her work present an embracement of difference and personality, as well as an appreciation towards the fact that memories can be created out of the smallest of things.

QB has been working closely with Jonsson ever since her graduation from the Oslo Academy of the Arts in 2021, exhibiting her in KUBEN only four months after her graduation. Jonsson is acquired by the National Museum (NO), KODE Museum (NO) and the National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design (NO).
