April 2004: Lesley Long

Lesley Long artwork is populated with creatures; some recognizable, some not.  As she puts it, "The feel or personality of the various inhabitants are important.  These are serious dream animals and creatures with tooth and claw showing.  Pointy things sticking out and eyes carefully trained on that another that' a bit too close."   Using a palette of vibrant colors, her work is spontaneous, imaginative and energetic.  The main body of Long' work will be oil on canvas and board with a few additional pieces in oil pastel on paper.
