Sergej Jensen, who once described his work as “painting without paint,” is best known for his manifold textile works. He works with a range of found and manipulated fabrics, including silk, cashmere, burlap, wool, and hand-knitted swatches. His process involves a combination of painting over, sewing, gluing, bleaching, dying, and stretching the materials in ways that often highlight idiosyncrasies and traces of wear and tear. New works are sometimes based on off-cuts from previous bodies of work. Jensen is also known for his gestural marks, muted palette, and a style that incorporates both abstract and representational elements. When hanging his exhibitions, Jensen will sometimes include domestic items in the arrangements, such as fireplaces and carpeting.
