> DESCRIPTION

In Shelved, an exhibition of small sculptures, Malia Jensen distills many of the concepts essential to her practice. She combines intensely seductive materials (primarily bronze and glass in this case) with a dark sense of humor, encouraging the viewer to deeply identify with the frequently imperfect or set-upon animals and quotidian objects that are often her subjects. Metaphorically rich, and sometimes perplexing, Jensen’s work relieves and redeems the funny brutality of all daily human interaction.

Malia Jensen received her BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 1989. Her work has been exhibited at PICA (Portland, OR), the Melbourne International Arts Festival (Melbourne, Australia), and The New Museum (New York), among many others. In 1991 and 1998 she was featured in the Oregon Biennial, and her work is included in the Altoids Collection, an acclaimed traveling collection of emerging art. Jensen is represented by the Elizabeth Leach Gallery and is currently based in New York.
