Memory is malleable, but that doesn't mean it isn't true. In Lost Long the memories that fuel a long distance love affair with the horizontal landscape of Central Montana come together in a miscellanea of written words, gathered recordings, and reinvented visuals. The account holds dear to what memory believes; recounting days together, imagining reunions and making real what is distant.

Ruth Marie Tomlinson utilizes repetitive processes to exercise her passion for systems, for cataloging and for restructuring. The work often touches simple quandaries we face daily: What changes? What remains? What is remembered? What is forgotten? Tomlinson spends summers in her Montana Studio, Two Dot Spot, and winters in Seattle, teaching at Cornish College of the Arts and longing for the Montana horizon.
