Matthew Jensen Bio

About The Artist

Matthew Jensen says that the phrase "conceptual landscape art" best describes his work. Landscape photography and rigorously built collections are a big component of his artistic process. Jensen's landscapes often develop into metaphors with recurring iconography, such as spruce trees, landscaped boulders, the sun, clouds, and blue skies. Spending a great deal of time in the landscape—walking and exploring—is essential to his process and often yields voluminous collections. Every Tree in Town, featured here, is a good example as the final series comprises 1,017 photographs.

Jensen's work The 49 States was recently acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Using Google "Street View," Jensen captured what he calls "expansive and beautiful nowheres" that, despite their separation from the hustle and flow of people and cities, are still touched by technology.
