Christopher Long – says: The work I’m presenting here is built around painting’s synesthetic possibilities. That through color you can feel the temperature in a picture; smell the leaves or hear different kinds of silence and compare them. It is to bring forward a “regular-ness”. To keep you in your shoes. These paintings don’t strive to show you how something looked when I saw it, but to put you back when you were there in your own landscape. And it’s in this context that the work depicts the interface between different worlds in the same painting; inside – outside, above water – below, person – nature, animal – human, and in different ways minimize, bend or reinforce those boundaries.
