Cornelia Jensen

Jensenís work ranges from figure-ground painting to stylized found-object assemblage. By juxtaposing recycled objects and images in a reliquary format, she references the relationship between our man-made environment and the human unconscious. Her work achieves a contingency between form and content while blurring the boundary between abstract and representational imagery. After writing a thesis on light artist, James Turrell, Jensen was inspired to incorporate light as a medium into the sculptural pieces. These light-fused works can function as individual objects or can be conformed into larger installations. The added element of illumination transforms our conception of what is a normal avenue to the sublime.
