Richard Long

Richard Long has been in the vanguard of conceptual art since he created the iconic work, A Line Made by Walking (1967), while still at Saint Martin’s School of Art. By transforming a journey – or physical intervention – within the landscape into an object in its own right, Long changed the way art was perceived. Long has since walked the earth through mountains and deserts, from shorelines to grasslands and from rivers to snowscapes. He mediates his experience of these places through photographs, maps and text works, where measurements of time and distance, place names and phenomena are vocabulary for both original ideas and powerful, condensed narratives.
