Statement

Cornelia Jensen’s work ranges from landscape painting to found-object assemblage, often blurring the boundary between abstract and representational imagery. By juxtaposing recycled objects in a reliquary format, Jensen references the relationship between human-made environment and human unconscious. Jensen has begun incorporating light into some of her assemblages. The added element of illumination, transforms our conception of what is a normal avenue to the sublime. Currently Jensen is focused on landscape painting, following in the footsteps of her late father. All her work represents a personal concern with the existence and lifespan of our natural environment vis-a-vis human industry and how it suffers or wins.

Jensen received her MFA from California College of the Arts in 2009. Recently she attended an artist residency at The Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. While living in San Francisco Jensen participated in an artist residency at the Lola Gallery which she also helped create. She also designed and created venues for art and film, including The Werepad, where she curated art and multi-media events, and worked on independent films. In 1988 she began the graduate program in Film/Video Performance at California College of Arts and Crafts. In 1987, she received a BA in Philosophy from Haverford College. In 1986 she studied at the Syracuse University Studio Art Program in Florence, Italy. She graduated with honors in Art from The Masters School in 1983 and received the Merriam Hewitt Art Award. Jensen started exhibiting her art at the age of four. Her work has been exhibited in the United States, Europe and Korea and is in private collections in the United States and Europe. Jensen was born in 1965. She currently lives in Brooklyn.
