Like Sarah McLachlan, Eric Jensen is building a mystery. Look at his painting, “Without Title.” Not giving anything away with a name like that, right? But the painting itself looks like a redo of “The Last Supper” with oversized glittery Helvetica letters over it. And those three letters on the bottom half of the canvas, “UCK,” are likely to lead viewers to think it spells out, well, you know, “lucky.” What else?

Also showing at Artspace1616 with Jensen are ceramics by Jon Stevenson.
