    Phenomena Bending Wind Reed is an original oil on canvas painting realized by the American artist Paul Jenkins in 1978. The piece is hand signed in the lower center, titled and dated overleaf. Includes a gilded wooden frame.

    Paul Jenkins (Kansas City, Missouri, 1923 - Manhattan, NY, 2012). Paul Jenkins grew up wanting to be artist and on the weekends would work at a ceramics factory, where watching the master mold-maker’s handling of shape and color, he said, had a profound effect on his ideas about painting. After graduating high school, he served in the U.S. Maritime Service and entered the U.S. Naval Air Corps during World War II.
    In 1948, he moved to New York City where, on the G.I. Bill, he studied at the Art Students League of New York. During that time, he met Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock and in 1953, after traveling to Europe where he worked for a brief period of time, he decided to reside in Paris permanently and divide his time between there and New York. 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 color 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.

Paul Jenkins

United States Born in: 1923 Masterpieces

Born in 1923 in Kansas City, Paul Jenkins is an American painter.

He studied art at Kansas City Art Institute and simultaneously began to work as a ceramist at James Welson. He continued his artistic training at Art Student League, in New York.

In this context of strong artistic creations, he felt inspired by abstract expressionism but modern painters as well, like Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin and Wassily Kandinsky.

His ceramist training strongly influenced his way of painting as the artist uses procedures, peculiar to pottery enamel as well as techniques belonging to decorative art or watercolors. His creative procedure is therefore his own. Paul Jenkins realizes abstract work. He doesn't give them life through their subject but because they are already there. For this, the painter focuses on the composition and association of colors.
