"Beauty is truth and truth is beauty" - Ruskin.
Olivia Long expresses both, through the art she has created. From the meticulous detail in her botanical renderings, to the lush density displayed in texture and abstracted forms, Olivia has suffused all with rarely matched skill. Sensitivity to colour and the ever changing character of light, displays an awareness acquired while residing in Asia and Europe. An intimacy of time and place is evident within the grandeur of Olivia's landscapes. Her floral interpretation of still life is juxtaposed with the richness of materials and thought.
