The art of Steve Jensen — be it paintings, sculpture or carvings — suggests a glimpse into the distant past while hinting at the unknown future. Each work evokes a sense of continuity that transcends time and space, always circling one back to their individual path and their personal voyage of life.
“The voyage’’ has been a recurring theme for as long as I can remember making art. The boat as a haven, the vessel of transport — is meant to symbolize a journey into the unknown … perhaps to the other side, or from the old life to the new. I want my viewers to contemplate what the voyage means to them. For me, it harkens back to my grandfather’s boat. I grew up on boats.” –STEVE JENSEN
