This is a piece that depicts man - partway between the gritty material of the universe and the eternal. This uses abstract texture to represent the material cause and Trompe L-oeil Realism to represent that which is just outside of us - our final cause.

This is an earlier work called Prayer. It is a large oil painting with an explorative color scheme. It is another sky intrusion, but a much more bold one. This is based on a deep space nebula as if it were very proximate to us.

This is another in a series of intruded skyscapes. Initially, it doesn't look like much is intruded, but if you look at the moon, you'll notice that it is actually in the form of an icosohedron instead of a sphere. I love the image of an icosohedron. To me it symobolizes perfection, as it has a strong connection to the golden ratio.

This piece has a stronger theological edge to it. It is a modern interpretation of the annunciation to Mary. This is meant to play with that beautiful dark and light contrast that was used in the Baroque age. It also simplifies color to help focus on the simple and humble portrait of Mary.

This is a portrait commission that I did for my grandparents. I really enjoy the textural quality of the paint and I try to exploit that quality in my work.

I like this,How many hours or days did it take you to complete it?
J. M. Jensen - Over 30 days ago
This process takes about 2 or three days of painting. Usually 4 -6 hour settings each.

This large landscape was developed from a plein-air (outdoor) painting that I did in Rocky Mountain Mational Park. I tried to maintain the feeling of rough paint application and freshness that the original study had.

This is an oil landscape from a series that brought together deep space objects and lansdscapes of the west. This particular one is more subtle and a small globular cluster can be seen in the center.

This is an illustration done for an editorial brochure created by a local company in Denver. The work is a hybrid of traditional drawing and digital painting. This is a great process and very quick.

This is a gritty oil wash painting of Jacob wrestling with the angel. The simple color and gritty paint application show of the forms of the figures as they move and intertwine.

This large painting is a depiction of the story of Jacob and the dream of a ladder to the heavens. The idea has been modified to make the angels into birds. The rock that he is resting his head on is an icosohedran as is the center of the heaqvenly event above him. This is an oil painting that branches from the classical tradition but still contains some new elements incorporated from modern influences.

About Me:
Justin M. Jensen

I have been studying fine art extensively for over a decade but I have always been drawing. I work quite a bit in gallery art but I also love doing illustration and design work. My illustrations are a blend of traditional and digital and I enjoy trying different approaches to a style or piece. I love using Photoshop, Illustrator and Painter and I am constantly expanding my use of these as well as traditional media.
