Robert Longo: An Artist’s Journey
Robert Longo is a well known and important American artist. Since the late 70’s he has created a large body of work that mines the collective unconscious of our culture – capturing archetypal themes that resonate deeply within us. He trolls the culture, and chooses particular iconography evoking themes of power, aggression, and violence – both man made and natural. Educated at State University in Buffalo and coming to NY with friends and colleagues such as Cindy Sherman and others, these young artists became part of the Pictures Generation – a movement that challenged themes of minimalism and conceptual art. During the many years that followed, his work has included a variety of mediums – film, photography, performance art, painting and sculpture. Today his art consists, primarily, of powerful drawings made in charcoal, image making in black and white – a binary world suggestive of the power of the opposites. Included are several exhibitions filmed at Metro Pictures and Petzel Galleries in SOHO and Chelsea. Interviews are with Robert Longo, Helene Winer, Cindy Sherman, curator/critic Richard Milazzo, and artists Larry Litt and Arnold Wechsler.
