About the Artist
Candace Jensen is committed to realizing a culture profoundly informed by deep ecology. She is a visual artist, writer, calligrapher and witch. She has exhibited work in Vermont, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Oakland, New York, and Antwerp. Her writing and artwork have been featured in both online and curated print publications, such as Studio Visit Magazine and Iterant Mag. She is a current artist member at Amos Eno Gallery (Brooklyn), where she collaborates as an exhibiting artist and curator and is the new Letterpress and Book Arts Programming Director at the Ruth Stone House in Goshen, VT.
Jensen earned her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2018, and her BFA from Tyler School of Art in 2008, both in Philadelphia. She has completed over 1000 hours of advance study in Tantra, Feminine Form Yoga, Ayurveda and Herbalism, and maintains a personal practice and a student-educator relationship to these teachings. Her recent solo exhibitions at Fleisher Art Memorial (Philadelphia, PA) and Amos Eno Gallery (Brooklyn, NY) both featured large bodies of visual art and writing rooted in the tradition of illuminated manuscripts which highlight ecoliteracy, deep ecology and empathic writing. The artist lives and works in N'dakinna (Southern Vermont) part of unceded traditional lands of the Western Abenaki Peoples, where she is establishing In Situ Polyculture; an artist retreat, residency and commons, with her partner the artist Owen Schuh.
