The odd in three

Split into three sections, Tom Long explores the relationship between three distinct will these separate elements/environments fit together? This is the exploration that the artist is looking to achieve...A natural, mountain scene sandwiched between two geometric, decorative forms...not only in contrast but also in color, cool blues and pattern make up the totemic, vertical tower on the top of the mountain and the blue optical, horizontal shape grounding the mountain, visually.

This theme carries on in other works, he plays with the format to create an odd whole out of familiar parts...they are graphically executed, realistic interplay between tight patterns and modeled landscapes...a modern take on eastern influences.
