Contemplating the vastness of space, Robert Longo’s new drawings of planets and stars continue his exploration of operatic themes through monumentally scaled charcoal drawings. In these intensely drawn black and white images the moon becomes a glowing ball of dust and the earth an abstraction of swirling weather patterns. These, as well as Longo’s other recent series’ of crashing waves, atomic explosions and views of Freud’s consulting room, share a stunning visual presence and a haunting emotional content.
