“Considered a third generation Abstract Expressionist painter, Bill Jensen made canvasses, often inspired by Chinese poetry and Buddhism, that sought to ignite areas of psyche and memory and create powerful emotional connections. Albert Pinkham Ryder, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, and Clyfford Still are all touchstones for Jensen’s vigorous, landscape-like abstractions, where shape, line, and intense color follow unpredictable yet harmonious paths.” (© Artsy)
