Richard Long is a renowned British artist who has made and shown work internationally for over forty years. He has won the Turner Prize and in 2013 was awarded the CBE. Some of the works he makes are the result of his walks through the landscape. For others he uses natural materials such as stones, slate, wood, clay and mud and uses these to make lyrical images and sculptures in galleries, gardens and museums. Richard Long is unique amongst contemporary sculptors in using the environment and nature in this way to convey archetypal images, which cross boundaries and cultures and have the ability to deeply move his audience.
Juliet Miller tracks down the artist to try and discover how his work has the power to get inside the viewer where it can stimulate powerful feelings and connections with the natural world. The writer explores her own responses to this artist and considers the ways in which great art can affect us all. It is not a theoretical book in either a psychoanalytic or art critical way and will appeal to those interested in Richard Longs work, in contemporary British sculpture and in how to talk or write about the feelings we may have when relating to an artist.
Richard Long writes about On the Track of Richard Long: I feel a connection with Carl Jung. In some ways he was also an artist, he made striking and original images ahead of his time. It's always a pleasure to encounter a fresh point of view - not from the art world - that reveals things to me about my work which I may not have considered myself
