Cut Out 2(Triptych)

Studio Sale this weekend and hopefully a chance to move some of the art onto better homes.

”Basically it is looking for marks and meanings about floods and disasters,” Long said. ”I used the fragments in my art. It is looking for memory traces, physical traces … verbal traces are what started me off on the exhibition, just phrases and words, it started with verbal traces.”
