Richard Long (b. 1945) is a British painter and sculptor known for his permanent and transient works, across several media, which address the complex relationship between humans and nature. Long was born in Bristol, and studied at the West of England School of Art and St. Martin’s School of Art in London. Employing natural materials including water, rocks, and mud, Long creates works that trace his movement, largely walking on foot, through different landscapes in England, Scotland, and the western United States. Throughout his works, walking becomes a documented art form, through which he can explore the transience of time, distance, and place. Long has exhibited his work at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, England; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands; the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA, among many other institutions. He has created several public works on commission, including pieces for the Hearst Building in New York and at Houghton Hall in Norfolk. In 1989, he was awarded the Turner Prize, and he is a Commander of the Order of the British Empire and a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. He currently lives and works in Bristol, England.
