Giant Robot is proud to host Singing Her To Sleep, an art show featuring the work of Jack Long.
Jack Long grew up in West Chester, Pennsylvania, received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002, and currently resides in Los Angeles. Painting in oils on wood, his work explores human relationships in a narrative setting and draws heavily upon the tradition of storytelling, often utilizing motifs and imagery found in mythology and fairytales.
For the show, Long is preparing a collection of paintings celebrating everyday life, love, and nature. The images elevate the ordinary into mythical events and scenarios, filling them with a sense of grandeur and mystery.
A reception for the artist will be held from 6:30 to 10:00 on Saturday, June 27. For more information about the show, GRNY, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
