Paul Jenkins - United States

A prominent figure in American Abstraction, Paul Jenkins secured himself as a lasting name in the fine art world through his stunningly nonfigurative works, whether in his poured oils on canvas or his delicate yet pungent color prints. While his works lack in representation, an experimental spirit and his embrace of chance, what he called ‘Phenomena’, carried throughout any medium he touched, providing for brilliant creations that transcend the notion of painting as well as graphic conventions. Paul Jenkins (American, 1923–2012) Born in Missouri in 1923, Paul Jenkins grew up wanting to be artist and on the weekends would work at a ceramics factory, where watching the master mold-maker’s handling of shape and color, he said, had a profound effect on his ideas about painting. During this time Jenkins achieved international prominence for his early abstractions due to his method of abstraction which is a tactile, chance-driven method of painting that privileged almost every technique over brushwork. His first solo exhibition in New York was in 1956 with the Martha Jackson Gallery, a leading gallery of the time, and with the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York purchasing a painting from the exhibition success followed. In 1959, Peggy Guggenheim purchased a Paul Jenkins painting from the artist’s studio in Paris further cementing his status. Listings wanted.
