Known for his precise photo-realistic drawings, Robert Longo’s works border between representational and symbolic. His charcoal into thick-textured surfaces technique gives his velvety drawings deep, blackened expanses and sharply contrasting whites; his forms are at once representational and softly elusive. "Angel’s Wing” features the artist’s signature velvety black background sharply contrasted by the white angel wings. Rendered with immense detail, the result is a sublime study of religion, culture and aesthetics.

“ "I always imagine that I want to make art that is going to kill you, whether it’s going to do it visually or physically, I’ll take either way." —Robert Longo „
