Video: Jeff Long - A Portrait of a Shipyard Artist

This episode features versatile painter Jeff Long. Equally at home in abstraction or realism, Long’s paintings draw from many different sources – landscape and nature, cultural traditions, tribal design elements, Modernist motifs – fusing these elements into uniquely personalized impressions of the world.

Jeff’s work is held in numerous public collections including the Achenbach Foundation/Legion of Honor, UCLA, the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Nebraska, and the U.S. Embassy in Manila.

“I started with representational work, landscape-based, connected to nature. Gradually that work morphed into geometric abstraction. In the last decade I’ve returned to representational art with a certain kind of political content. I think I’m going to continue to go back and forth between abstraction and representational work to work right on the edge of those two things.” – Jeff Long (Building 101, Studio 2412)
