Intimate Immensities Exhibition Promotional Postcard

The Studio @ 620 presents “Intimate Immensities: Curiosity Cabinets of the Floating Woods” the premiere exhibition of Saint Petersburg & Gulf Hammock FL based artist Kenny Jensen.

This wide-ranging collection comprises nine visually distinct yet thematically interwoven bodies of work featuring more than one hundred recent images and artifacts created or collected over the past two years, as well as several older works dating back to the mid 2000s. From large, sculptural array of swamp driftwood to minute drawings on fragile, decayed paper, these varied explorations dwell in the margins between: the traditional and experimental, the familiar and unfamiliar, pattern and chaos.

The resulting installation embodies a culmination of themes and practices developed over the past decade; some of  which were conceived during the formative time as an orchestrator of Project Creo; the former Morean Arts Center contemporary art and site-specific installation space realized in collaboration with Jason Jensen and The City of St. Petersburg at The Pier. In the proceeding years these ideas have been further cultivated outside of traditional gallery settings finding more fertile ground in Florida’s unique wilderness; specifically engaged through the lens of Floating Woods, the Jensen family land, located within the heart of the Nature Coast. “Intimate Immensities” signifies a reemergence into the community; a synthesis of swamp and gallery.
