Reviews the distinctive body of work created by acclaimed British artist Long (b. 1945) from the late 1960s to 1990, focusing particularly on projects dating from the past five years. Included in the survey are photographs, maps and text pieces produced by the artist to document his carefully planned walks in often desolate landscapes in the British Isles, the Sahara, the Arctic Circle and other regions, as well as examples of his mural and floor paintings in mud and his archetypal sculptures composed of stones and other materials gathered during the walks. A critical discussion of Long's meditative oeuvre and its links to Conceptual, Minimal and Land art is supplemented by an interview and excerpts from other conversations with the artist and a commentary by his colleague Hamish Fulton. Please note that last available copy has several pages that are roughly-trimmed along the bottom edge and the dust jacket has a small inventory sticker attached to the front corner. Book and dust jacket are otherwise in very good condition.
