Canfor Gallery – April 29th to July 10th, 2016
Michele J Jensen
Michele J Jensen, formerly of Prince George and now living just outside Edmonton, paints other-worldly landscapes that are often somewhat disconcerting. Strange sources of light illuminating her forests, swathes of torn fabric fluttering while snagged on trees, and other peculiar details hint at some manner of ominous underpinning. In today’s context where climate and environmental change are nearly synonymous, Jensen’s artwork too offers a timely and particular kind of heads-up as we consider how navigating the future might appear.
Featured artwork: Michele J Jensen, Dippers, 2013. Acrylic on masonite panel.
