Jensen subverts the traditional painting vocabulary by employing textiles such as linen, burlap and silk as support in his pieces. Moreover, the artist appropriates all kinds of textiles, and explores the contrast between high and low quality materials, whistle deconstructing and sewing them together. Extremely subtle abstract compositions emerge in the process. Jensen applies paints and gold leaf over the textiles, evoking an almost accidental, fortuitous use of the former, simultaneously highlighting textures, wefts and entanglements of the latter.
