Anna Jensen makes quite a scene and we’re into it. The imagery in her paintings is uncanny, real and surreal at the same time. It’s absurd, and also somehow believable. The mystery is thick in these paintings, and although you’ll never figure out how Mr. Rogers ended up in the back of a Chevy truck on 4th of July with an empty bottle of Rough Rider whiskey nearby, the image will stick with you. In the artist’s words, “My paintings are psychological landscapes and emotionally complex narratives. I combine references to art history, pop culture, natural science and personal chronicles to represent the conflicts of life. The titles are important elements. Like me, the stories are at once funny and sad.”
