Half Sun, Richard Long: red tezontle stone from Coatepec, Estado de México and sited at Luis Barragán’s iconic modernist landmark, Cuadra San Cristóbal; 9 x 4.5 x 0.3m 2020; image by Sebastiano Pellion di Persano


Richard Long continues to surprise, translating concepts with Earth materials into tangible interventions. His art seems familiar, as if we’ve always known it at a liminal level, so when we experience his work – even via video or image –  a kind of re-cognition takes place, which is simultaneously calming and elating.
