They Sailed Away by Jack Long
They Sailed Away, 2005
Oil paint on wood
25 x 31 inches
Painting in oils on wood, Jack Long’s work draws heavily upon the tradition of storytelling, utilizing motifs and imagery found in mythology and fairy tales. His paintings reflect the modern world through a mystical mirror. Themes of community, sustainability, conflict, and love are all explored. In these fantastic and mythological images, nature, society and our own habitats are transformed and presented back to the viewer, a process that the artist sees as inherent in our view of the world.
