From the gallery’s announcement:

The human element in nature is a connecting thread in Jeffrey Long’s broad swathe of paintings done over the past five decades. His paintings, expressed in various visual languages, abstract, representational, figurative, narrative, and metaphorical, are meant to bring order to direct experience.  
In this twenty year survey exhibition, Long engages viewers through his distinctive paintings that balance elements of Modernist design with traditions from tribal and Asian art. The exhibition will feature a curated selection of work from his series Mosaic, Moderne, Numbers, Rip Rap, and Shelters.  

A recently published 530-page monograph will be available for purchase during the exhibition.

Long’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and has been acquired by countless private collectors and more than 100 corporate collections.  Many of his large scale works are now in museums, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Oakland Museum, the Crocker Museum, Sacramento, the Achenbach Foundation California Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco, Racine Museum of Fine Arts,  Racine, WI, and Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
