Transcript of Ben Long
To make a fresco, an artist must:
make a full scale detailed drawing.
lay 3 layers of wet plaster.
when plaster is firm, trace drawing by punching or pressing through paper.
paint the pigment onto the the wet plaster.
In 1984, Long moved to France, where, for the next 14 years, he split time between Paris and the Gard region of Provence. By the time of the move, Long had completed several frescoes in Italy.
These works set the stage for several major fresco projects in the U.S. (13 to this day), including a dome and the largest secular fresco in the United States.
The Early years
Ben Long grew up in Statesville, NC. Grandson of noted artist McKendree Robbins Long and reared in a family of artists, writers, professors, and university presidents, Long was as precocious in his artistic ability as he was eager to apply it. At 18, Long followed in his father's footsteps to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he majored in Creative Writing
