In a departure from his dreamy, large-scale and immersive beachscapes, Jensen-Nagle’s latest series, Beach Elements, deconstructs his typical sun-soaked scenes and focuses on individual elements that often make up his colorful compositions.
The series is comprised of three main collections. Firstly, a collection of modern sculptures featuring silhouettes of beach goers and beach accessories. Originally photographed by the artist and then engineered into stainless steel and aluminum fabrications, these graphic sculptures are all colorfully coated with pearlized automotive enamel in bright and bold hues.
This series also includes photographs of playfully patterned beach umbrellas and multicolored beach huts, known as bathing boxes from Brighton Beach in Melbourne, Australia.
