Deconstructing Marcus Jansen
Please note, this event has expired.
Deconstructing Marcus Jansen is the fourth in a series of exhibitions—following Francis Bacon, Robert Mangold, and Louise Nevelson—that focus on the style, themes, and history of individual artists within the Kemper Museum Permanent Collection.
Marcus Jansen (American, b. 1968) finds inspiration in the world around him. Regarded as a pioneer of “urban landscape painting,” Jansen uses his upbringing in both the United States and Germany, and places he was stationed during his time in the army, as influence for his paintings. Drawing inspiration from New York Abstract Expressionism as well as graffiti, Pop art, and Surrealism, Jansen employs practices from these art forms to create paintings that make social commentary.
