Malia Jensen
Ground Effects

New Sculpture
October 6 - October 29, 2016

formatting

Malia Jensen uses the juxtaposition of raw and seductive materials, metaphor and a dark sense of humor to examine quintessentially human traits, such as desire, greed, lust, and a need to reveal the humor, brutality and beauty of our daily lives. In Ground Effects, Jensen explores her fascination with natural and human made cycles; the building, collapsing and rebuilding of the systems we use to sustain our bodies and the natural world which surrounds us. In this new body of work, Jensen moves away from producing editions and presents unique objects and drawings. Creating an intensely personal body of work that draws from the memories, mediums and passions of her past and present.

Jensen received her BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 1989. Her work has been exhibited in many institutions including PICA (Portland, OR), the Melbourne International Arts Festival (Melbourne, Australia), The New Museum (New York, NY). In 1991, 1998 and 2016 she was featured in the Oregon Biennial, and In 2002 Jensen received a Bonnie Bronson Fellowship. This will be Jensen’s fifth solo exhibition at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.
