About 艾尔弗雷德 詹森

艾尔弗雷德·詹森1903 年出生于瓜地马拉市, 1981 年逝于美国利云斯顿。他曾在圣地牙哥美术学院学习,之后在德国慕尼黑跟随汉斯·何夫曼学习。后来,延森在 1934 年搬到美国居住。在他的赞助人萨依德·亚德·梅的鼓励下,他继续探索色彩理论和颜色所带来的无限可能性。延森杂中有序的图案反映出他独有的抽象风格。在1950年后期开始,他尝试从不同的学派和思潮中寻找自己的道路. 从色彩和光与影到数学,从玛雅年历到科学公式; 融合各种文化上的激荡,他最终选择了色彩斑斓的西洋棋盘状图案作为表达的媒介和工具。延森利用数学系统绘画出两维格状的画作,反映出他对色彩理论的掌握。然而, 画作充满了隐喻的符号,突显出前哥伦布时期及东方文化、布艺和占卜学对延森的影响。佩斯画廊从1977 年开始代理延森的作品。

Press Release

  • ADAA: The Art Show

    Pace Gallery is pleased to participate in the 31st annual edition of The Art Show with an exhibition dedicated to the renowned artist Alfred Jensen (1903 – 1981). The presentation continues the gallery’s long-held tradition of dedicating its booth at The Art Show to a single artist.

    Using a bold polychromatic palette and gridded compositions, Jensen structured his works with overlapping systems of forms, colors, signs, and numbers. Drawing together approximately 10 paintings and works on paper, Pace’s presentation includes works from the late-1950s through the mid-1970s—showcasing the incorporation of gridded patterns and calligraphy that characterized much of Jensen’s work of the 1950s, and the evolution into increasingly intricate and diagrammatic works through the 1960s and 70s.

    Jensen’s work is held in numerous institutional collections throughout the United States and abroad, including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; Dallas Museum of Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk; The Museum of Modern Art; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
