Tribunal IV, by Gendron Jensen

This totemic image is from Gendron Jensen's Tribunal series- seven drawings, each seven feet high- on exhibit at the Knoedler Project Space in Manhattan. Each image is a detailed rendering of a group of coyote bones. Actual coyote bones are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. In Jensen's large-scale renderings, which exceed photographic exactness and move toward the hyperreal, the bones exert a powerful presence. Graham Beal of the Detroit Institute of Arts commented: "To some Greek philosophers the endless, indefinable, and ultimately ungraspable nature of the universe led to a state of wordlessness (apophosis): an unavoidable silence engendered by the inability of the human mind to grasp anything much beyond a fragment of what creation actually is. In the silence of Gendron's drawings we see another kind of apophosis as well as its opposite: a wordless expression of the mystery of existence."
