Summer Seduction by Joshua Jensen-Nagle at Bau-Xi Vancouver. Remembering Days With You, archival inkjet print face-mounted to plexiglass, 43 x 41 inches.

Joshua Jensen-Nagle’s new series Summer Seduction depicts bathers and sun worshipping beach goers in a soft dreamlike state, a technique that he has mastered over his career.

The hazy coloured leisure settings portrayed in Jensen-Nagle’s new pieces bestow an instant feeling of serenity to the viewer. He states that his inspiration comes from the need to escape contemporary life or “the mundane day-to-day tasks we all struggle through so we can eventually leave it behind for a few weeks and stare off into the deep blue.”

Jensen-Nagle explains that even though many of these beaches are often crowded, hot and difficult to get to, the eventual reward of basking in the salt and sun is worth the effort. “It is a necessity to rejuvenate our mind and body with such rituals and this series explores such a practice.”

Jensen-Nagle’s images trigger for the viewer a distant memory, blurred by the possibility that it was never experienced at all. Perhaps it is a memory of a place where time has no meaning and waking from dreaming is not a consideration.
