    “To err is human but to forgive is divine” – so much for moral rhetoric because when it comes to art, mistakes sometimes give way to artistic brilliance. Last April 9th, AF came to view the paintings of Bill Jensen for his show, Transgressions. His works are more than happy accidents because they are experimental or it may take years to develop. There was a great deal of layering, brushing away, scraping and manipulation of paint that created the very tactile nature of his oeuvre which ranged from brilliant punctuations of color to the monochromatic elegance of neutrals that breathe vibrantly. It is a world of abstraction that permeated such life into the canvas as this artist took the risk of letting the paint organically direct itself into divine realms that few can imagine inhabiting. It is the beauty of imperfection that makes artwork an omnipotent experience to behold.
