Rubicon / The Rubicon Paintings, The Ezra Sculptures and The Inventarium Drawings
Comprising new paintings, sculptures and drawings, the exhibition shows Jenssen's interest in exploring new media and materials and combining them in thoughtful and strikingly installed exhibitions.
The densely woven Rubicon Paintings manifest themselves in two large formats pushing the limits of the gallery space, and in a series of intimate paintings hatched from the large canvases and presented in delicate display frames.
With voluptuous profiles and slim bodies, the figures that constitute the Ezra Sculptures seem like they have travelled to the gallery from a faraway place to guide us into new territories.
The Inventarium Drawings are monumental charcoal drawings on canvas. Starting off with an anachronistic figuration and then led by inner impulse, the charcoal line continues its winding path over the canvas, with the resulting image resembling a "painting by numbers" without its instructions.
