Richard Long

Richard Long is a prominent English sculptor. Known as one of the United Kingdom s foremost practitioners of Land Art, his work derives inspiration from personal experience, geographic history, and plant life. Employing natural materials?ranging from water, rocks, and mud in a variety of media, such as sculpture, installation, text, and paintings?Long creates works that trace his movement, largely walking on foot, through different landscapes in England, Scotland, and the Western United States. The outdoor environment shapes Long s process, wherein he often forms circles and lines using local materials in site-based works. ?I like the idea that art can be made anywhere,? the artist has said, ?perhaps seen by few people, or not recognized as art when they do.? Since his graduation from Saint Martin s School of Art in London in 1968, he has gained considerable attention for his work, notably including a solo exhibition at the Tate Modern in London. Long holds the distinction of being the only artist to have been short-listed four times for the prestigious Turner Prize. Born on June 2, 1945, he currently lives and works in his birthplace of Bristol, England.
