"Five Degrees of Abstraction"
2008-03-25 until 2008-04-15
New York, NY,
USA United States of America
Five Degrees of Abstraction is the Agora Gallery's exhibition from March 25 through April 15, 2008. The group show will feature work by Judith Barath,
Beatrice Burel, Cary Griffiths, Maiken Hejnfelt, Geppe Hernandez, Edward Longo, Gayl Sharabi, and Patricia Timbrook. The unique styles and working methods of the artists showcased in Five Degrees of Abstraction are a consequence of seeking to express the ineffable in new, personal ways. Rapturous beauty combines with intriguing symbolism to explore the inner and outer worlds; each artwork becomes a note in a collective effort to unlock the mysteries of being. Edward Longo has been a Premiere Portfolio artist at absolutearts.com since 2007.
Currently, four of Edward Longo's cement paintings, Angel Feathers 1, Angel Feathers 2, Angel Feathers 3, and Angel Feathers 4, are scheduled for the exhibition. In addition, two of the artist's most recent paintings, Intuitive Reflections, and Magic Lamp of Love and Prosperity, will also be included.
Being an avid Contemporary Artist, Longo has currently accumulated over one hundred paintings and a multitude of works on paper to be exhibited at some future date. Edward Longo's energetic paintings do not conform to classification. His abstract expressionisms possess a modern sensibility in color and style while his paintings retain an organic, often primal conceptualization of the natural world.
In describing his process Longo states, "I paint forms and shapes according to spiritual intervention. With the harmony of a musical concert the colors and rhythms complement each underlying theme." He has a fantastic imagination that springs forth emotion, much like the tides of his invigorating muse, the sea. With consistent invention he will paint expressively with brush or palette knife as he embellishes the canvas, manifesting forms with vivid colors using a fervent freedom of expression. Longo‚s development as an artist includes education at Porter School of Design and Wilcox Architectural School proceeded by a fifteen-year career in drafting and design. Contributing to his growing reputation, Longo's work has been frequently exhibited in prominent galleries, hotels, and public spaces around New York City. Longo lives and works in Manhattan.
