Christopher Long – his works summon the intimacy of wild grown places. The closeness tucked away nearby, but still depopulated, decontextualized, and atomized, growing with the persistent yet undefined nature of life in limited space. The forests and plants in these works are ordinary transitional places; buffers between apartment buildings, borderlands, vacant lots, edges of fields – anywhere plants can grow without intervention. If something can grow, it will. Whatever works, works. They are apocalyptic landscapes and primordial jungles tucked into the folds of the world, standing witness.
