Don’t Die, Dummy
On view April 5th – May 1st, 2012
Opening reception Sunday April 8th, 5-7 p.m.
Daniel Long is very much in the spirit of painting. Channeling his wild visions and feelings into diaristic works, he creates with a sense of immediacy. In a variety of media, Long playfully borrows styles from Classical to Pop and mixes in his own ideas of the contemporary. With references to historical sources of painting and images from his daily visual field, Long constantly challenges conventional ideas of art, the value of painting, and the relationship of art to the everyday. The body of work in Don’t Die, Dummy celebrates his studio practice and the sense of freedom that Long finds in imagery that makes up certain cloud-like, visual rhymes.
Daniel Long is currently a first year student in the MFA in Visual Studies Program at Pacific Northwest College of Art. He is from Memphis, Tennessee.
