Birgit Jensen, Kagami 33 III, 2018, acrylic on canvas, 66 7/8 x 55 1/8 inches
Birgit Jensen — MONDE
Leverkusen Schloss Morsbroich
June 19 - July 19, 2020
At the most basic level, Birgit Jensen is a landscape painter. She’ll appropriate an image of a site — often someplace she’s never been, sometimes a place that doesn’t even exist — and manipulate the pixels, making up the image into geometric marks or patterns, and then make a low-resolution, pixelated painting in oil or acrylic on canvas.

Inspired both by Japanese woodblock prints and the Pop Art of Andy Warhol, Jensen’s paintings vibrate and shimmer. From a distance (or viewed as a small photographic image), they’re easily discernible. Upon closer inspection however, they break down into textile-like patterns and become more abstract — a comment on the relationship between perspective and understanding.

Jensen’s most recent work revolves around the moon and its reflection in a still body of water. Her paintings feature vibrant, unexpected color combinations, achieved through a meticulous process of layering silkscreens, custom-made by the artist. The results are striking, and speak to the nature of perception, mediation, interpretation, and memory.

New to Inventory

Cornelius Völker, Hair-do, 2005, oil on canvas, 27 1/2 x 25 5/8 inches
With a distinctive method of handling paint that is simultaneously fluid and precise, German artist Cornelius Völker chooses traditional genres — the still-life and portraiture — to explore and decode the history of representational painting.

Frequently involving subject matter that was used by painters for centuries to best exhibit their proficiency — hair, hands, flesh, glass, food — Völker’s works blur traditional distinctions between genres, each painting becoming both a still life and a portrait. Whether or not actually figurative, nearly every work that Völker paints refers to the body.
