Voyager: Steve Jensen
Fogue Studios & Gallery, Seattle, WA - Feb 3 - 25
The Voyager series was born when a dying friend asked Steve Jensen to build a boat for his ashes. Since that time, Seattle-based Jensen has carved and sculpted many funeral boats for friends and family, including his own father. Coming from a long line of Norwegian fishermen and boatbuilders, Jensen grew up on his father’s fishing boat, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Both his heritage and his experiences in nature influence his art making. Included in this exhibition will be carvings from recycled wood, sculptures made from salvaged marine bronze, oil paintings on nautical charts and mixed-media images on found wood.
