”Bubbling with texture and vivid emotions, Jeppson’s creatures put a new, strange twist on cartoons – as they are far from the cartoons you may be used to seeing on television. Instead, the artist paints his characters with complicated expressions that are not so easily understood, making them anything but one-dimensional. Jeppsons’s characters are created not only two-dimensionally in paint, but are also brought into the third dimension in his densely layered and brilliantly peculiar sculptures. These somewhat humorous figures are interesting in a way that is just slihgtly off, leaving the complexity of the artist’s work at its surface”
