Richard Long was born in Bristol in 1945 and graduated from St Martin’s in 1968, he has become synonymous with the British Land Art movement and much of his work has been made as a result of solitary walks in the countryside. Making subtle adjustments to the land through which he walks, Long then documents this using photography, text or sculpture. Representing Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1976 and winner of the Turner Prize in 1989, Long’s work has been exhibited internationally – most notably in 2009 when his work was the subject of a major survey at Tate Britain. Long continues to live in the South West but travels extensively when making his work.
