About the artist

Sergej Jensen

Sergej Jensen, born in 1973, is a Danish artist best known for his manifold textile works. Jensen uses a multitude of fabrics such as wool, burlap, cashmere, and linen to create his lyrical compositions. His process involves sewing, gluing, and painting in order to highlight the idiosyncrasies and imperfections of the material. These anomalies, frayed edges and discolorations, are not only gestural, but also point to negative space and delineated forms. Jensen often recycles leftover fabrics from previous works into his next projects. The artist has described his practice as “painting without paint.” A current 2021 solo exhibition of Jensen’s work at the Kunsthalle Bern in Switzerland exemplifies this practice through the treatment of canvas and materials: the textiles are shredded and stretched then patched back together, paint coated and scraped on top. He has had numerous works sold at auction, and in 2013 he reached a personal record price of $262,500 USD at Christie’s New York for an untitled mixed-media work.

Jensen lives and works in Berlin and New York and has been featured in a number of solo and group exhibitions. His work can be found in collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the MoMA.
