The Salesman: Framed in a simple wood frame this bas relief / sculpture-painting is complete with sturdy backing and ready to be hung in the room on any of any home, office or hotel lobby. The figurative image was sculpted into fiberboard, finished in color and then glossed over. The work was completed in 1987 - and still holding up as though it had been completed this year. This is perhaps the best of the sculpture-paintings series created so far by artist Edward Longo.

Creative painting is not merely the process of executing ones medium, such as oil, or acrylic - it is the art of transferring ones feelings from the palate onto the canvas. Ultimately, when the artists work is being observed it will be appreciated for the inspiration that transpired during its inception . . . Creative art, therefore, simply becomes a matter of transference of feelings. To put it bluntly: art without feeling is tantamount to observing a stained glass window without light, or a Tiffany lamp without its electricity.Each painting became manifest, subconsciously, without ever having a particular theme, or specific image in mind. In essence, each and every painting has been painstakingly processed, spiritually, as I am certain those talented artists who have passed must have experienced. This mysterious connection actually felt as if it was being transmitted through my own hand - each piece becoming developed through a different attitude. At times, while in the creative zone, it was as if I had been stimulated by a bolt of immense, positive electricity.DESCRIPTIVE of an INSPIRATIONAL ARTIST:Every art painting is an original - each painting becoming developed through a different attitude! Each time I began painting it was as if I had experienced what master artists of the past must have imagined during the process of creating their impressions. As I kept experimenting with different techniques it became evident to me that I had sometimes gotten in touch, spiritually, with some of these legendary artists. After allowing this process to flow, I realized I had found a way to have my images become more in keeping with the eloquent, spontaneous, brush strokes of these masters. PRESS RELEASE: Edward Longos paintings are combinations of spontaneous inspiration, emotional freedom and daring color explorations. Longo describes the creative process as the art of transferring ones feelings from the palette onto the canvas. Early life on the East Coast brought Edward Longo in contact with the verdant countryside and oceans, inasmuch as brine rolling foam and lusty breezes became ingrained within the confines of a truly sensitive spirit. With bold colors and painterly brushstrokes, Longos work possesses a passionate flair, even in his most serene compositions. His work displays the attention to intense colors and geometric shapes of Abstract Expressionism, while exuding the Romanticism and soft brushwork of Impressionism. Originally from Hartford, CT, Edward Longo studied architectural drafting and painting. Adding photography to his list of talents, throughout the past twenty years he has exhibited his work in prominent Manhattan galleries, hotels, and public spaces. He currently lives and works in New York City.

Profile The best part about this work is that up close it appears to be marble when it is not. Actually, the piece is glued to the dark panel,which is definately subject to change . . . Edward   
Profile technique, Ed. I really like the transparent effect and hunting for the figure. The only part I think doesn't work (and it may not be part of the piece) is the dark brown background. I think another shade of grey (a wee bit darker) would enhance it better.
