Statement

Jake Longstreth reduces his images to their basic elements.  His flat, light-filled paintings stray liberally from the photographs they are based on, inhabiting a middle ground of painterly subjectivity. Faithful adherence to the observed world is not Longstreth’s goal, as he explains: "Painting can be useful in that it simplifies, revealing the abstractions of our current condition through a discerning lack of detail." Indeed, his pictures omit as much information as they provide, while still corresponding to the weight of experience. Such expressive limitations show evidence of the restraint in Longstreth’s vision: his work resists itself, stubbornly showing what is – all it is – in an abiding quietude.
