A Painter’s Painter’s Paintings

Brian Dupont reflects on Bill Jensen's recent exhibition of new paintings at Cheim & Read, New York.

Compared to his contemporaries, Brice Marden and Terry Winters who share a "specific and identifiable interest in their respective thorough procedures," Dupont writes, "Jensen has remained restless and constantly searching within his painting practice, forgoing the comfort of signature subjects to focus on the process of making a painting… His quest for a single image yields tendencies, not anything that could be described as a brand… His works remain easel sized, and even at their largest, speak in a voice more intimate whisper than bombastic shout for attention. Quiet and unassuming, he is content to allow his pictures to stand for themselves, and as they always seem to be moving, the artist becomes hard to pin down."
