Ben Long: “Moving Landscapes”

“Moving Landscapes” von Ben Long im Rahmen des Projekts “48 Sheet” im britischen Birmingham. “These artworks could be taken simply as a subversion of representational art because they appear to disrupt the traditional values of painting and present abstraction as high octane thrill-seeking,” Ben says. “But I also think there is a cautionary meaning in there too, which is to do with how the historic can be manipulated and used as a commodity, and how we have become over-saturated with paintings by artists such as Constable to the point that we are no longer able to see them clearly.” Via/Via
