The Long Now, 2014, was an exhibition hosted by Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. The large-scale paintings created immersive environments for the visitors. With material combinations of digital printmaking on heavy weight watercolor paper mounted to ACM aluminum panels, with water based paints including airbrushed acrylics and inks, and oil paints. The works use multiple panels tiled together to create mural-scale paintings for architectural conditions such as Echoes Embrace a 20 ft piece for a corner, and Chimera a painting for a curved wall, two 10 ft square paintings that faced each other in a confined arrangement.


The goals of this exhibition were to sensitize visitors to the physicality of their embodied cognitive and perceptual processes, and invite them to contemplate the function and actions of their own imagination on these processes.


This exhibition evolved in a dialogue with Curator Dr. Leonie Bradbury.
