He calls his work liquid sculptures or splash photography.  Looking similar to jellyfish, mushrooms, flowers, balloons, and even skulls, these water images can all be seen in the precise, pristine photography created by Jack Long.

Jack Long’s brilliant LIQUID & LIGHT photo exhibition will adorn the gallery walls at Inspiration Studios with an Opening Reception on Friday, September 4, from 5-9pm.  The reception is free and open to the public.

LIQUID & LIGHT will be on display and available for private and public viewings through September 28.  An artist talk/demonstration is scheduled for Saturday, September 19 at 2:00pm.

Long explains, “Whether intentional or by chance, these images are always precisely controlled, and captured with high speed photography. I construct apparatus that in turn create liquid forms never before seen within stop action photography. The works are original in concept and completion. While primarily working with liquids, other materials are often used.

All of Long’s images in this exhibition were captured in a flash, in mid air, as amazing sculptures and for only a fraction of a second—splashes!  Viewers will be hard pressed to believe that all of the images were created with Long’s photography and creative manipulations, using water as the primary subject.

“The art is very much in the creation of the forms­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­. They become very temporary 3-dimensional sculptures. Photography, through composition and lighting, are the only means to view these very brief events,” according to Long.

Over the past 25 years, Long has participated in solo and juried group exhibitions from Vermont to Oregon.  His works have been published in numerous European on line publications and on the American ABC News Blog for Vessels and Blooms series and other online blogs.

In preparing for LIQUID & LIGHT, Long has taken a fresh look at his work as a whole and not just a series of experiments. This has led to the exploration of technical and mechanical aspects that go into creating the work.   Always looking for an increase in efficiency in the workflow from concept through presentation, Long has researched and explored new methods as well as improved existing techniques and mechanicals.  Plans include 3D viewing capability for this exhibit.

Inspiration Studios is located at 1500 S. 73rd Street in West Allis.  Jack Long’s LIQUID & LIGHT exhibit of liquid sculptures will be on display September 4-28.  All are welcome to the opening reception on September 4, from 5:00 to 9:00pm.  Refreshments will be served.
