A multidisciplinary artist most well-known for her carved work, Hannah Jensen graduated from Auckland University of Technology in 2004 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in printmaking, and transferred her skills to the painted medium in her postgraduate practice, developing a unique stylistic approach.
Jensen achieves her bespoke work by applying layers of paint to board before employing printmaking techniques such as intaglio, etching and carving to create thematic content. The results are detailed images rendered in negative relief that emphasises the texture and tonal variations between paint colours in a topographical manner. Using anywhere between 25 – 75 layers of paint, Jensen calculates the depth of each layer to provide the necessary variations of colour, texture and shadow in the work.
In 2004, Jensen was nominated for a Mazda Emerging Artist award; in 2009, she was a finalist in the World of Wearable Arts Competition; and in 2012 she was one of four artists selected to present site-specific installation work at the prestigious New Zealand Fashion Week. In 2014 she lived and created in Venice Beach, California for the ‘Kiwis in LA’ exhibition. She has recently completed her dream show ‘WILD‘; eight impressive large-scale animal works exhibited at Allpress Studio in April 2018. And now has embarked on a new adventure in the South Island, carving from her beachside pad and dreaming up a 6-metre Whale carving and a 4-metre Rhino
Jensen is actively involved in the community, she was a volunteer art teacher at Starship Hospital from January 2010 until August 2018 and is looking for a new venture to share her skills. She also continues to donate her works to multiple charity auctions. Jensen exhibits regularly in solo and group shows both throughout New Zealand and overseas, and produces commissioned work for local and international clients from her now Christchurch studio.
