Seminal land artist, Richard Long, has created two new site-specific works for his latest show at The Hepworth Wakefield, which runs until 14 October. The exhibition explores the artist’s practice across his career, from early photo-based works such as A Lane Made by Walking (1967) and England (1968), to later sculptures Willow Sticks (1980) and Cornish Slate Ellipse (2009). Whilst it’s a pleasure to revisit these works, Long’s china clay wall-work provides the highlight. Watch the artist hard at work creating the piece.
ARTIST ROOMS: Richard Long, 23/06/2012 until 14/10/2012, The Hepworth Wakefield, Gallery Walk, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF1 5AW. www.hepworthwakefield.org
