PERSONAL EXHIBITION NO 258.


the press release

Richard Long, an essential figure of the conceptual and land art movements, grew up near the River Avon in Bristol (UK)
and has been using the mud from its tidal banks since the 1970s.
Using simple geometric forms - lines, circles and spirals -  he applies the mud to paper, panels and walls with vigorous, fluid gestures,
or with carefully placed fingerprints and handprints.
This exhibition includes large panels, works on paper, as well as sculpture of basalt stone from the Italian Alps.
