Modern Mythologies

May 27 – Jun 14, 2019

About the Artist      

Roman Longginou’s new series of drawings examine the idea of fragmented mythologies and their association with our current image/media-saturated environment. Referring to both the past and present, these works remain open to interpretation, allowing space for self-reflection.

About the Artist

Roman Longginou

Drawing connections between picture and narrative, my current work makes use of popular and commercial imagery. Cropping, cutting and merging images together to form black and white composite pictures. The idea, being to represent a whole picture as a construction of images rather than present a unified narrative. In this way, subverting traditional notions of visual narrative and mimicking our current media saturated environment, presenting ideas and thoughts to us as partials rather than wholes.
