Richard Long

Richard Long is known for his amazing land art and sculptures. He creates art by walking in landscapes, and creating sculptures along the way, and often creating textworks from these walks. On his website he states:

“In the nature of things:
Art about mobility, lightness and freedom.
Simple creative acts of walking and marking
about place, locality, time, distance and measurement.
Works using raw materials and my human scale
in the reality of landscapes.

The music of stones, paths of shared footmarks,
sleeping by the river’s roar.”

His work focuses largely on the use of simplistic form, this is his underpinning theme consistent in his works. Consistent use of architectural shapes, mainly circle, line, cross, and spiral, make his works incredibly notable and easily identifiable.
