Richard Long. Mountains and Waters
George Braziller, New York, 1993
Regarded as one of Britain’s most internationally acclaimed contemporary artists, Long creates works that defy easy categories. A circle of stones that echoes the rolling hills of the Canadian countryside on which it was create, or a spare line of snow near a temple in Kyoto symbolize the private solitude of the artist and the very freedom of art itself. These works also bring to mind the unending cycles of weather and time as well as the indelible presence and value of art. This volume is comprised of photographs, text works, and maps, and record simultaneously transitory and enduring aspects of Richard Long’s “walks” and siteworks from 1974-92.
