Ciara Long: A Different Perspective

Ciara Long: A Different Perspective

March 14, 2014

Ciara Long’s art reflects the itinerate life of a military child. Moving from place to place, Long ritualistically sketched the people she met and left behind. “The fragmented lifestyle of my past has directly influenced the way I observe the environment around me now,” says Long.

The body of work on exhibit illustrates Long’s ongoing process of elaborately encoding her observations and has been carefully organized according to place of occurrence, specific moments in time, or specific individuals. The language fragments and portraits are etched into acrylic or polycarbonate in efforts to permanently preserve those memories. Long also invites viewers to participate in future projects through an interactive web component.

The exhibit continues in the second Floor Gallery through May 4, 2014.
