Alfred Jensen: Concordance, 2003, Installation view

Although Alfred Jensen’s work had been examined in major international exhibitions, Concordance, an exhibition of selected major paintings from 1960 to 1980, represented the artist’s first comprehensive solo exhibition in Los Angeles. Active since the early 1950s, Jensen discovered his mature artistic voice in 1960, after repudiating abstract expressionist form and color in favor of an art based exclusively on the diagram. In such key works as Cycle Ending, Per I-V (1960) and Parthenon (1962), Jensen developed the parameters of a vision that would define his work over the next twenty years: signs from Mayan calendrical and numerical systems, palette from Goethian color theory, and patterns echoing Guatemala’s landscape, architecture, and textiles. Concordance was organized by Dia Center for the Arts curator Lynne Cooke.
