Richard Long: Sculptures

For pioneering earth artist, landscape is both subject and medium

Richard Long is a trail blazer in more ways than one. The British artist has been at the forefront of the Land Art movement for over forty years. But unlike many of his Earth Art colleagues, Long's work doesn't significantly alter the landscape.
