Steve Jensen - Voyage
Steve Jensen plays an influential role in the Pacific Northwest, making his mark on the landscape with monumental public artworks, as well as emotionally charged paintings and sculptures imbued with personal narrative. For Jensen, the boat embodies the concept of passage from place to place, from life to death. Carved calligraphic motifs reflect his close relationship to the water and the refashioning of found elements mirror the aesthetic traditions of his Norwegian forebearers.
Steve Jensen is a veritable representative of the Seattle arts community as a graduate of the University of Washington and the Cornish College of the Arts. His work has been exhibited in galleries across the country and is featured in the permanent collections of several prominent museums.
