Richard Long: Mud Drawings and Other New Work Made at Sperone Westwater (RARE)


Member Price
Richard Long: Mud Drawings & Other New Works at Sperone Westwater is a rare, out-of-print publication that documents the exhibit from September 10 to October 23, 2004, of new work at the New York gallery. The artist’s thirteenth solo exhibition at the gallery consisted of numerous mud “drawings” on American Douglas-fir plywood, as well as a winding plywood path.

Created in the gallery with River Avon mud and Cornish China clay, which the artist brought with him from England, the gestural mud works are lyrical testaments to the natural world as the mud patterns work with the natural grain of the plywood to create pattern and shape.  However, the mud drawings are also governed by strict structural principles that serve to echo their carefully-ordered outdoor sculptural counterparts.
