Working quietly for decades on a singular pursuit, Jensen’s body of work is a study in power and refinement. Known for arresting images of faces, often drawn in one or two wildly confident marks, Jensen himself has said little about his work publicly. Born on the Atlantic coast of Canada, Jensen studied at NSCAD University in Nova Scotia. His early work in monotypes (a printmaking process) reveal an appreciation for the quick, spontaneous mark, the letting go of perfection. Jensen finds the image as it is revealed moment by moment in the process.
