Review:

"The finest monograph on any artist published this year."

Synopsis:

Newly available in paperback, "Richard Long - Walking the Line" centres mainly on the artist's work from the last dozen years. Majestic museum sculptures made from tons of rock are juxtaposed with dramatic mud paintings and photographs recording ephemeral changes to the natural landscape. Many of the photographs were taken by the artist himself, and he has also included his own notes and writings.

Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. 'Places give me ideas . I get my energy from being out on the road or walking in the mountains.' Richard Long This volume by and about the sculptor and pioneer land artist Richard Long explores his work from the 1990s to the present day. Long's ability to make works of physical and intellectual beauty is unrivalled, and this new journey takes the reader around the world: to the Sahara Desert and down the Rio Grande, from coast to coast in Ireland and Spain, to Tierra del Fuego and Mongolia, and to the forests of Honshu in Japan. Some of the artist's sculptures were made during his walks through the world's landscapes, while others bring the material of nature - stones, boulders, driftwood, clay and mud - into a more public or sheltered environment: museums, galleries, houses, gardens. These works feed the senses, whereas the texts and photographs recording the artist's walks feed the imagination. Majestic museum pieces made from tons of rock are juxtaposed with dramatic mud works and with photographs recording ephemeral sculptures often made in remote landscapes. Most of the photographs were taken by the artist himself, and the book also includes his own notes and writings. If walking has become Long's trademark, the path is a central image or archetype in his work. The idea of the path or way has meaning in all cultures - from the most material to the most spiritual. It is both real and symbolic, whether it is a life, a road, or the Taoist 'Great Way'. With his walks, Richard Long weaves a line through many traditions, creating an art that is timeless and universal. Seller Inventory # HUK9780500284094
