Acclaimed digital artist Jane Long recently brought her art to London on the 10th-13th March at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea Evolution, Battersea Park.
Jane gained international recognition in 2014 with her Dancing with Costica series, a whimsical reworking of Romanian photographer Costica Ascinte’s work. Ascinte died in 1984 and his work has since been digitised by photo enthusiast Cezar Popescu.
Each photograph in the Dancing with Costica series was carefully colorized and treated to a little Photoshop magic by Long in her romantic reinterpretations.
Jane’s pieces will be exhibited and sold through Retrospect Galleries’ stand at the Fair. These will include pieces from the Dancing with Costica series and Jane will also be launching her new series, Nasty Little Creatures.
‘I’m really excited to be showing in London for the first time!’ says Long. ‘The Dancing with Costica series gained a lot of interest in the UK and I’m looking forward to seeing people’s reaction to the new series, which is quite different.’
This is a significant week for Jane as she also produced the album artwork for the latest offering from Norwegian singer Aurora, who shot to fame last Christmas when she covered Oasis’ ‘Half the World Away’ for the John Lewis Christmas campaign.
The album was released 11th of March and the collection of images feature Aurora in fantastical scenes as well as a series of still lifes.
