Earthworks of Richard Long | For Richard Long the art of working with nature is almost always about the journey. He describes some of his works as walks themselves, and other works as sculptures made along his way. In many cases he appropriates natural materials to create new configurations, designs and patterns from them. In others he further splits these geometries in a return to more naturalistic forms.
