6PM ALL AGES CPG Presents: Duane Kirby Jensen
April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Cascadia Poetry Group Presents:
Duane Kirby Jensen. Poet. Painter. Publisher. Host of Everett Poetry Night.
The ekphrastic form has always been apart of his creative life. As a narrative poet he has translating the worlds he sees in paintings and photography into poetry. As an artist he has often turned poetry into paintings.
He has shown and read at numerous venous throughout the northwest since 1989.
His work explores the individuals relationship with the modern world, and the nature of isolation and its gravitational effect on emotion. He also explores the fragility of identity and the ease in which it can disappear. He often takes his subjects to the edge of madness. His work evokes those emotions that linger beneath the surface, which underscores the narrative line being explored.
In 2013, in recognition to his work as poet in Everett, he received the Mayors Art’s Award, being named:
Artist in the Community for his Artistic Excellence & His Contributions to Everett Cultural Vitality.
