Alfred Jensen

Born 1903, Guatemala. Died 1981, Livingston, New Jersey.



Alfred Jensen abandoned the painterly Abstract Expressionists' gesture in favor of hard-edged geometry. Jensen's work is based on theories of color, light, time, architecture, the Mayan calendar, and the I Ching. With the goal of bringing ancient truths into the modern age, Jensen created historically- and mathematically- based compositions.
