Richard Long (*1945 in Bristol) uses natural materials and his own physical presence to create his sometimes ephemeral works. He visually documents the tangible yet temporary traces that he purposefully leaves behind on his walks in a landscape, before leaving them to nature. These include markings that make human intervention in nature visible, either as a subtle gesture such as path left by feet in the grass or as a striking object made of organic materials. His artistic work is based on nomadic principles, with which Long illuminates the interactions between bodies, time and nature; he thus engages with the seeming contradiction between nature and order. While his sculptures align with strict geometric configurations such as circles, straight lines, crosses and spirals, their material surface remains unprocessed. And the minimalist impression of these works of formal reduction is only reinforced by the one-sided use of materials.
