Places seen and Imagined
“One of my long-standing projects in painting has been to convey my impressions of place, seen, remembered, and imagined. These are improvisational pictures, which riff on the geometries, hard edges and colors of shacks, sheds and huts. I try to disclose the visual poetry latent in structures and in landscapes that have been manipulated and fractured by man. My paintings, LITTLE HOUSES, ORANGE HOUSES, SHELTERS series, and HOUSEBOATS fit this category. I try to see the landscape for what it has become in the era of overpopulation and economic inequity.
“In spite of the facts that the human population has more than doubled in the past fifty years, and that 96 percent of all animal life on the planet is made up of humans and the livestock of humans, there are still patches of relatively intact landscape.” – Jeffrey Long
