Deceptive Sensorial Sculptures
Artist Malia Jensen Teases Audiences with Juxtaposed Artworks

Malia Jensen, an artist based in New York City, plays tricks on people’s minds through the creation of clever sensorial sculptures. As Beautiful Decay aptly observes, “Malia Jensen juxtaposes deep sensory textures with completely opposite objects or animals to create a feeling of longing, sexuality, desire, or play.” For instance, a breast is shaped out of a block of sold salt, and thus will never feel a tongue the way that it should.

As comical as some of Malia Jensen’s pieces may appear at first, she states, “You can seduce someone in, and they might be laughing for a while, but they realize this is somewhat dark. There’s a deep sadness in a lot of work. It’s like finding a human condition in an animal parallel.”
