Sergei Jensen

Excellent installation views of Sergei Jensen's exhibition of paintings and works on paper at Portikus in Frankfurt. Jensen's abstract paintings are accompanied by his drawings of dogs in an adjacent gallery. "Jute, linen, and colorful fabrics now on standardized stretcher frames and now on frames he builds himself are the materials Sergej Jensen uses as textile support media. Yet they are more than mere grounds onto which a picture is applied, as is customarily the case in painting; instead, they become the work’s content in their own right."
