Jensen grew up in Hampton, Iowa. He studied art and art history at the University of Iowa.
Tullis is originally from Idaho. He attended Oregon State University, where he studied graphic design. After attending school he worked for a graphic design studio in Eugene, Oregon.
Both artists now are professors at Western Kentucky University.
Jensen is known for his unique style of artwork. He describes his work this way:“The type seen as a form, the positive and negative shapes that occur when they are arranged on the surface that supports them; combined with the gestures made with slashes of paint.”
Tullis’s work consists of sculpture and prints. In these he explores topography and the alphabet. Tullis said, “Using reclaimed typographic artifacts as the dominant thematic element, I combine various found objects to create composition that recall the persona and mystique of old signage.”
This exhibit is running from February 27 to March 30. A reception for the two artists will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. on March 30.
