American abstract artist Paul Jenkins (1923 – 2012) was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. He was a member of the New York School and his innovative practice was exemplified by his choice to avoid the paintbrush and allow pigment to bleed, pool, or roll across his canvases’ surface, to create fluid fields of color by guiding the paint with a knife. He could use great pressure on the sensitive tooth of the canvas with the smooth organic surface of the ivory. Jenkins used to work at a ceramics factory in his youth, and this experience strongly inspired his perceptible painting methods. Jenkins studied with Yasuo Kuniyoshi at the Art Students League in New York, NY and the Kansas City Art Institute. Yasuo Kuniyoshi was a close friend of Mark Rothko. Jenkins stayed connected to the city even during the time he moved to Paris in the 1950s. It was during that time that he met Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner and Mark Rothko. In the course of his work, Jenkins exhibited in many places including The Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio; Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, California; Palazzo Pacchiani, Prato, Italy; Basilica Palladiana, Vicenza; Center for the Arts, Vero Beach, Florida, and RedFern Gallery, London, to name but a few. These exhibitions made his art to be very popular, especially the framed Paul Jenkins art. In 1960 Jenkins stopped working in oil on canvas and started working with acrylic. He also began to paint using an ivory knife. The painter died in New York, NY on June 9, 2012 at the age of 88.
