David Jensen

Specialty: Gestural paintings

About: David Jensen’s paintings act as a documentation of the physical areas of the studio where the works are created. Time is a crucial part of his composition, expressed through a dense layering of materials that result from washed, gestural mark making, which is then erased and covered up again with new marks and washes. He uses acrylic paint, spray paint, pastels, moss, and studio debris to build up a surface over time. He draws inspiration from paint sinks, weathered floors, sun bleached fabrics, and other materials that embody their own history. Jensen has been featured in exhibitions in Minneapolis, MN, at the New York Design Center, and Southampton, NY and is represented by Bicycle Fine Art in New York City and Grand Hand Gallery in Saint Paul. His work has been featured in Rolling Stone, NY Times Style Magazine, Time, Billboard, GQ, and Interview.
