Richard Long is one of the most compelling and original of contemporary artists. In creating works of art that are inspired by and founded on the process of walking, he has pioneered new ways of understanding the relationship between the individual artist and his surrounding environment.
In the range of his walks and in the scope of his international exhibitions, Long has become established as an artist of the world, transcending the milieu of the 1960s avant-garde in which he first rose to prominence. Though his individual works in themselves are often simple, they form, cumulatively, a body of work that is boundlessly rich and complex, with a universal character. As Long himself says, '... the different forms of my work represent freedom and richness - it's not possible to say "everything" in one way.'
The integrity, purity and formal beauty of Long's work are admired worldwide. In this book he presents chosen works from some 30 years of his response to landscapes both near and far, and a selection of some of his recent exhibitions.
