    Additional Information & Condition

    „Robert Longos riesige fotorealistische Kohlezeichnungen zeigen Schönheit und Schrecken der Gegenwart: In großen Formaten konfrontiert der amerikanische Künstler die Unschuld schlafender Kleinkinder, die stille Grandiosität von Erde und Planeten, Rosenblüten und gotische Kathedralen mit bedrohlichen Bildern von Atombombenexplosionen, Kampfjet-Piloten, Monsterwellen, Haifischen und Revolvermündungen. Unerbittlich und seismografisch genau zeichnet der Träger des Goslarer Kaiserrings 2005 den Zustand unserer Welt auf. Robert Longos machtvolle Motive verleihen den Angst- und Sehnsuchtsgefühlen der Menschen des 21. Jahrhunderts Form und Ausdruck und treffen den Betrachter mit voller medialer Wucht.“ (Source: Hatje Cantz Verlag, 11.11.2015)
