Robert Longo

Robert Longo

Robert Longo was born in 1953 in Brooklyn, New York, where he lives and works. Longo’s epic narrative strength comes from his transformation of the intimate practice of drawing into the monumental scale of painting, elevating the medium to a scale never seen before. Like an Old Master artist, he achieves an extremely emotional range through his use of chiaroscuro, harnessing light and dark as primary material. As an artist known for his profound ability to depict complex psychological states, his work strikes a balance between the very personal and the socially charged, reflecting the world we live in today. Though, photographically based – his works are conceptual in design and highly abstract upon close inspection. There’s often a political undercurrent in his choice of imagery. His works are constructed pictures with an emphatic physical presence, certainly an exploration of power and its implicit workings through all levels of life and experience.
Longo is perhaps best known for his “Men in the Cities” series from the early 1980’s. But over the past decade he has developed several other distinct bodies of work including: Monsters, waves about to break; The Sickness of Reason, atomic clouds rising into the sky; Ophelia, mysterious red roses in full bloom. Longo explains, “…the roses and the bombs and the waves are things that exist at the moment of their being: a bomb is meant to explode, a rose in born to bloom, a wave is destined to crash. They are at the moment of their fulfillment.”
