Scott Jensen: Speaking Cedar

Master carver Scott Jensen reveals a new body of carvings in November: pieces that will once again prove why his works are some of the most sought-after in the Northwest art world. Jensen carves at the highest technical level; captured in his masks, boxes, bowls and poles is the unmistakable quality of the pieces carved by the old masters.

“The trees draw up the essence of the landscape and transform it into an endless canopy of physical and spiritual gifts.  For me, wood into art is a final transformation that is at once reassuring and full of meaning. The ancient imagery of the Northwest Coast Indians has so profoundly and eloquently captured a relationship between man, nature, and belief that it has resonated across the centuries and given form and meaning to my own beliefs.  This artistic legacy is an immeasurable gift from humans to humanity and deserves to be spoken with life, authenticity and gratitude.”
