Profound Earthworks of Richard Long

Earthworks of Richard Long | For Richard Long the art of working with nature is almost always about the journey. He describes some of his works as walks themselves, and other works as sculptures made along his way. In many cases he appropriates natural materials to create new configurations, designs and patterns from them. In others he further splits these geometries in a return to more naturalistic forms.


Richard Long - Long loves nature and occasionally expresses an appreciation for extremely old structures. It appears that this was intended to be a miniature homage to Stonehenge. Although instead using his other favourite shape (besides the circle). A line.


Long often creates lines in landscapes to provide a narrative, or a journey, for the viewer to follow. These directional lines point away from the camera and lead us through different environments.
