Anna Jensen’s paintings are a synthesis of classical and abstract figuration. Her body of work is inspired by moments of both trauma and exaltation. Her skillful combination of abstract and graphic art is reminiscent of France’s own “Figuration Narrative” a movement from the 60s and 70s, which was a reaction to English and American Pop Art.
“My paintings are psychological landscapes and emotionally complex narratives. I combine references to art history, pop culture, natural science and personal chronicles to represent the conflicts of life. The titles are important elements. Like me the stories are at once funny and sad.”
— Anna Jensen
