Description

Charting Richard Longs critical reception, this well-illustrated anthology of writings deftly discloses the sculptors radical rethinking of the relationship between art and landscape. Widely considered one of the most influential British minimalist artists of his generation, Long (b. 1945) has maintained a practice that stems from his deep love of nature and solitary walking. He first came to prominence in the late 1960s and is part of a generation of international artists that extended the possibilities of sculpture beyond traditional materials and methods. This comprehensive volume includes over 30 essays and reviews on the artist from the late 1960s to the present, drawn together here for the first time. The texts are accompanied by key interviews, a selection of the artists own statements, and an introductory essay by editor Clarrie Wallis (curator of Modern and Contemporary British Art at Tate, London) that examines Longs unique position within postwar art history.
