Shark 5 - Longo´s enormous, photorealistic charcoal drawings show the beauty and horror of the present day and age, giving form and expression to the feelings of fear and longing felt by people in the twenty-first century.
"Shark 5" is part of a series of charcoal drawings centered around the ferocious man eater, titled "Perfect Gods". Longo’s shark emerges from the briny deeps, in a sensuous and sculptural photorealism, with its mouth wide open and its razor-sharp teeth pointing straight at the viewer, thus making the imminence of the tragedy palpable. As a result, the shark’s immense power and threatening nature are captured at their peak.
