2014 On the Edge
On the Edge – Statement
Jennifer Long’s new work examines memory and imagination to reveal observations of internal and external landscapes.
The vessel is used as a recurring emblem. Alone or grouped in suites it becomes a metaphor for the human form.
Objects and architectural forms also serve as referents for the human presence.
Vessels pose as silent observers of life's passing. The vessels sit at the edge of the pictorial space, balancing between the threshold of metaphor and physical realms.
Works explore and engage in a variety of medias, including collage and oil on ply, rice paper bowls, etchings, lithographs and woodcuts.
Jennifer's 14th solo exhibition On the Edge opened on 23 September - 6 October 2014 at the Percolator Gallery, 134 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington.
Some works are still available for purchase through the Shop setting.
