Paul Jenkins

(1923 - 2012)

About

The paintings of Paul Jenkins have come to represent the spirit, vitality, and invention of post-World War II American abstraction. Employing an unorthodox approach to paint application, Jenkins is as much identified with the process of controlled paint-pouring and canvas manipulation as with the gem-like veils of transparent and translucent colour which have characterized his work since the late 1950s.

Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri in 1923, Jenkins later moved to Youngstown, Ohio. Drawn to New York, he became a student of Yasuo Kuniyoshi at the Art Students League and ultimately became associated with the Abstract Expressionists, inspired in part by the "cataclysmic challenge of Pollock and the total metaphysical consumption of Mark Tobey."

An ongoing interest in Eastern religions and philosophy, the study of the I Ching, along with the writings of Carl Gustav Jung prompted Jenkins' turn toward inward reflection and mysticism which have dominated his aesthetic as well as his life.

  • Chronology

    1923

    Born in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Early Years

    At the Kansas City Art Institute takes several courses and makes drawings from a model and paints watercolours he calls "interior landscapes" related to caves he visited in the Ozarks, rivers, campfires and other forms of nature.

    Is ejected from class for eating the still life. As Albert E. Elsen quotes the artist in his monograph: "For me the pear is to be eaten and experienced, not painted."

    Works in ceramics with James Weldon, pouring clay slip into moulds, applying glazes and creating clay sculptures of heads and figures that he then fires. The kiln reveals the transformation of colour: the dry opaque glazes prior to the firing which then become subtly translucent or vitally defined in density.

    Meets Frank Lloyd Wright in 1940 when his great-uncle, theReverend Burris Jenkins,pastor of the First Community Church in Kansas City, Missouri,commissioned Wright to rebuild his church after a fire destroyed the building on Linwood Boulevard. (This church is now called theCommunity Christian Church). Frank Lloyd Wright advises the aspiring young artist to consider agriculture as a more solid pursuit to the vagaries of being an artist.

    On his great-uncle's suggestion, visits with Thomas Hart Benton at his home to discuss his intention to be a painter. Thomas Hart Benton asks the artist to return when he was 21. By that time, Paul Jenkins was in the US Naval Air Corps during WWII and didn't make the return visit.

    1944 - 1947

    In 1944, from the United States Maritime Service enters the US Naval Air Corps. Paints watercolours of Kabuki dancers during his time in the Naval Air Corps and makes what the distinguished art historian Albert E. Elsen describes as "Durer-esque" black and white graphite drawings.

    Is drawn to the teachings of Lao Tse Tung in theTao Te Chingwhich he describes in a December 5, 1945 letter as "masterpieces in simplicity."

    After his discharge from military service at the end of February 1946, studies playwriting with George McCalmon at the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) and continues to paint and draw on his own.

    1948 - 1952

    Under the G.I. Bill, studies with Yasuo Kuniyoshi for four years at theArt Students Leaguein New York where, in 1951, he meets Mark Rothko.

    Meets Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman in New York.

    1953

    Travels to Italy where, during a stay of several months in Sicily, he works on canvas in Taormina.

    Travels to Spain where he is deeply moved by thePrado.

    Frequents Michel Tapié, Pierre Restany, Etienne Martin, Zoe Dusanne, Kenneth B. Sawyer, as well as other American artists living there at the time.

    Working flat and pouring paint on paper and primed canvas provides a greater sense of totality.

    The unique abstractébauchesin oil of Gustave Moreau reveal to him the structure and inherent luminosity of colour.

    In the illuminated density radiating from the subject in the pastels of Odilon Redon, particularly inLa Coquille[The Conch Shell], he sees a specific kind of emanating light existing only in the pastels.

    DiscoversPsychology and Alchemyby Carl Gustav Jung and theI Ching: The Book of Changes.

    1954

    The flatness of the reflected lights at night on the Seine assumes a compelling verticality which disrupts the intruding horizon line and moves forward in a frontal configuration, evoking a sensation of nearness.

    1955

    Travels from Paris to New York in July of 1955 on theSSLiberté.

    1962

    Gradual encroachment of the granular veils in the paintings reveals a new sense of substance integrated on the canvas and "another kind of light, a reflecting or incandescent light." [Elsen, Paul Jenkins, p. 77]

    1967

    Over the next several years the artist paints large works on primed canvas in which greys and granular whites predominate.What Albert E.
