For the past twenty years, Andrew Long has simultaneously worked in several mediums. Specifically as it relates to painting, he has been investigating how color, form, and the geography of space can be an attraction and a deterrent. Long is interested in the process of undoing – making paintings that border on being seemingly elegantly unresolved. Perhaps if one looked long enough, the painting would shift slightly, fall apart or tighten up. He likes the awkward and clumsy interlaced with clarity, as it provides multiple viewpoints to contemplate, much like thought patterns.
