Describing her work, Ms. Long states “My abstract paintings and monotypes focus on brilliant colors and powerful forms. As the colors play against one another the created shapes seem to develop a life of their own. My interest in classical mythology, poetry, and anthropology contributes to the imagery of the work. I search for that subjective shape that stirs the viewer to bouts of recognition and denial. The work is dependent on process and painterly markings which create that visual awareness of content…a merge of the subjective and objective intellect.”
