Richard LONG

British Land art artist

Born in 1945

          This sculptor, photographer, and painter, is considered one of the founding members of Land art.

His minimalist works connect him to the Earthworks movement, whose influence was considerable in the 1970’s.

           Nature is both his material and his medium of expression; from maps, he surveys the sites of different continents as a tireless traveller.

           He strives to reveal the spirit of the place by carefully arranging the materials recovered on the spot (wood, rocks, earth, mud,) respecting the human scale regardless of the scale of the sites.
