Regen Projects presents ”The Adult Light,” the gallery’s third solo exhibition with the Berlin and New York-based artist Sergej Jensen. An opening reception for the artist was held on Saturday, July 9, 2022, but be sure to stoop in on August 20, 2022 for a final viewing of the show.. This presentation brings together Jensen’s oil painting on linen assemblages which foreground the relational possibilities of painting’s surface and background.

The artist continues his exploration of layering and removing as a process. Oil paint, applied with varying thickness and technique, neither conceals nor transcends the sewn canvas. Instead, it is cannibalized into the canvas to form a hybrid surface-object that mobilizes texture, dimension, and opticality all at once. What emerges is a series of works that take up the atmospheric qualities of light—a night spent on the terrace, a concert, the sun coming through the curtain, a lamp in the evening, a piece of plastic, an askew projection.
