About 艾尔弗雷德 詹森

艾爾弗雷德·詹森1903 年出生於瓜地馬拉市, 1981 年逝於美國利雲斯頓。他曾在聖地牙哥美術學院學習,之後在德國慕尼黑跟隨漢斯·何夫曼學習。後來,延森在 1934 年搬到美國居住。在他的贊助人薩依德·亞德·梅的鼓勵下,他繼續探索色彩理論和顏色所帶來的無限可能性。·詹森雜中有序的圖案反映出他獨有的抽象風格。在1950年後期開始,他嘗試從不同的學派和思潮中尋找自己的道路. 從色彩和光與影到數學,從瑪雅年歷到科學公式; 融合各種文化上的激蕩,他最終選擇了色彩斑斕的西洋棋盤狀圖案作為表達的媒介和工具。詹森利用數學系統繪畫出兩維格狀的畫作,反映出他對色彩理論的掌握。然而, 畫作充滿了隱喻的符號,突顯出前哥倫布時期及東方文化、布藝和占卜學對延森的影響。佩斯畫廊從1977 年開始代理·詹森的作品。

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.
