About the Artwork
Being part of the "Monsters" , the series of drawings of massive thundering waves, the "Thunder Road" is another captivating image of Longo's baroque representation of the sublime force of the sea. Each image from the series bears the name of a renowned surfing spots and present individual and emotional context.
“The waves are things that exist at the moment of their being [...]. They are at the moment of their fulfillment.”
"Monsters" mesmerize by its photo-realist aesthetic and velvety charcoal texture. The waves are the romantic infiniteness which devours the individual subject and leaves it struck with its own limitations by pointing to a larger picture in which all individuality disappears in front of the ungraspable. In 2004 the "Monsters" was part of Whitney Biennial.
About the Artist
Robert Longo (born 1953, in Brooklyn, New York) had a childhood fascination with mass media: movies, television, magazines and comic books, which continue to deeply influence his art. One of the quintessential artists of the 1980s, Longo is perhaps best known for the writhing, dancing figures in his iconic Men in the Cities series.
About the printing Technique
The term "pigment print" is used generally for any type of printed image that uses strictly pigments. Pigments can be either on a mineral basis or they can be an artificial product. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing.
