Catalogue Note

"The sense of the sublime that attends the experience of much of Longo’s work issues from the confrontation with this reality, specifically the work’s demonstration of a control that is exerted over the unruliness, the dirtiness, the fundamental excessiveness of charcoal, a material that must be recognized as insistent upon its own dissolution, its own tendency toward decoherence, disintegration, atomization."

Jonathan T. D. Neil, Exh. Cat., Paris, Galerie Thaddeaus Ropac, Roberto Longo: God Machine, 2011, pp. 19-20
