JENS MALMGREN I create, that is my hobby.

I am published!

Some time ago the authors of a book contacted me about publishing one of my paintings in their book. I was absolutely delighted by the request. I believe I was contacted in an early stage of the project and as time went by I almost forgot about it. Sometimes when I recalled the memory I started to contemplate about the incident. I was thinking that maybe in the later stage of the project my participation into the book had been cancelled. "Oh, uh we had no room over for your painting, sorry."

One week ago a package had been delivered to my doorstep. At that moment I was not at home so it took almost three days from that I received the message about the package until I had it in my hands. I was absolutely clueless about the content. Had I ordered anything on the Internet lately?

It turned out to be a book. I was delighted about the weight. It is nice to receive a heavy book with a beautiful glossy hardcover. The art of the illusion?

It is a wonderful feeling when the puzzle pieces fall into place in your mind and a nice conclusion is formed. This was such a moment. In reality forming this conclusion happens in fractions of a second but now when I think about it is as if it happened in slow motion. “Aha, this is a book”. “Okay it is about illusions”. “Why send it to me?”, “Who made it?” My inner rolodex started to roll backwards to find a match in the memory and in this case a match was found on Brad Honeycutt. AHA! This feeling is a nice coincidence because the book is all about such feelings. Every image in this book has a secret to be revealed.

I became so happy that I jumped around with the book for a while.

Then I read the foreword and started to look at the images. I really love this work of art. I am deeply honored to be featured in such collection of fine artists.

Brad and Terry published my painting of the four boxes. Currently this painting is exhibited at the office of in Utrecht. In the book they also published part of my impossible alphabet forming the word “The End”.

Also there is another thing. One of the requirements to get an article about your work on Wikipedia is that it has been published. Utterly cool obviously.
