Matthew Jensen

I found this artist on one of the many art websites I stalk follow a while back, and then I couldn't remember where I found them or who the artist was!  (This seems to be a reoccurring problem since starting this blog.)  I ran across them again this week and I can't get over how gorgeous they are.

These porcelain pieces are by Brooklyn-based conceptual landscape artist, Matthew Jensen.
I really love how he paired his thoughts and musings with the photographs making this series not just lovely fragile, broken pieces of history but intimate and relevant works of art.

"I thought it would be interesting to look for landscapes in objects rather than trying to find objects in the landscapes. So I went through my collection of porcelain shards and I set aside all the ones with flowers, plants or landscapes. I photographed the final collection using the type of camera that would be used by a jewelry photographer so that none of the nuanced details are lost." -from an interview with Little Paper Planes
