Product description

British artist (Bristol, 1945), is one of the greatest representatives of Land Art. One of his first sculptures was the path branded by the act of walking repeatedly in a straight line on a field of grass. He also made simple geometric sculptures, using natural materials collected in his walks in the field (circles of stones, lines that cross the space of a gallery made with pine needles, mud splashes on a wall, etc). his works are strongly conceptual. From the beginning of his career he worked indistinctly on natural landscapes and in the realization of exhibitions in closed spaces. His first solo exhibition was at the Konrad Fisher gallery in Díƒsseldof at 1968. From then on, his exhibitions continued in the best galleries and museums in the world, as well as his travels around the world. Walking a Line in Peru (1972) suggests a parallel with the ancient culture that created the enigmatic Nazca lines. A Line in the Himalayas (1975) is an excellent example of the simple use it makes of photography, while sculpture itself in situ is, in turn, an example of sensitivity and respect for the territory on which it works. At 1976 he represented England at the Venice Biennale. Among its many exhibitions include the Palacio de Cristal in Madrid and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
