New York, NY, September 7, 2021—The Bowery Gallery is pleased to present Jeremy Long: Recent Work, an exhibition featuring work by Jeremy Long, from September 7 through October 2. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, is Thursday, September 9, from 5 to 8 PM at the Bowery Gallery, 547 W 27th Street in New York.

Long’s second solo exhibition features paintings depicting domestic scenes of his family. In the largest painting figures fill the space in a mastery reminiscent of 17th century Dutch painting. Within such realized spaces a plasticity undermines the known framework of the historic reincarnation. Long expands his study within a second body of smaller works where forms subtly overtake the narrative with rhythms in the constructed space. Long’s nod at cubism and Hans Hofmann’s plasticity moves beyond modernism. His talent for depicting the real while playfully abstracting space is nuanced within the colorful shapes, patterns and textures that he creates. Within the exhibition catalogue Stanley Lewis explains the painting process as “Jeremy has reversed the “everything at once” thing. Now his abstracted versions are his dominant reality”.

Jeremy Long describes his work as “an attempt to expand a figure or object from within so that it can have a profound effect throughout the space of the picture.” The paintings present the appearance of a unique reality with an affinity and sense of place while exploring an idea of perfected balance through structure of parts.

Gallery hours are 11am to 6pm Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, please contact the gallery at 646-230-6655 or info@bowerygallery.org
