Allie Jensen is a Louisville based artist practicing meditative art techniques through repetitive linework and dotwork. Like an emotional muscle, her patience and ability to live in the moment are strengthened by her regular use of these methods. Primarily working in ink and acrylic, Jensen stacks and layers small components such as lines, dots, and circles, to create organic masses that reflect the "theory of complex systems".
Complex systems theory (CST) is concerned with identifying and characterizing common design elements that are observed across diverse natural, technological, and social complex systems. CST highlights the astounding interconnectedness of the universe and allows Jensen an opportunity to participate as a co-creator within it.
Since receiving her BA from Bellarmine University in May of 2018, Jensen has been working in her studio 40+ hours per week, further exploring CST with processes that promote mindfulness and self awareness.
