His stacks of brightly contrasting pigment recall sedimentary cross-sections as much as they do aerial views of rivers, valleys, and rock formations. Langford begins his canvases with impulsive mark-making, a technique that forms and gentles to a refinement of aesthetic in abstract, layered shapes. Graphic and linear, compositions nonetheless undulate across the canvas with a water-like flow. Concentric circles of color are dense and distinct deposits, unmistakably reminiscent of rock strata formed over thousands of years.
Langford’s work is prominently displayed in public, residential, and corporate collections around the globe, including the Long Beach Museum of Art, the Four Seasons in Hong Kong, the Intercontinental Hotel, San Diego, Nordstrom locations worldwide, Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City, and The Art Bank, U.S. State Department in Washington, DC, among many others.
Langford currently works from his studio in Los Angeles, California.
