Over the decades, Richard Long’s work has created a language of simple geometric forms, marked on the surface of the earth with stones, water, dust or snow. The relationship with place is vital to Long’s work and his 1977 Kaldor project in Australia was the first of several visits and projects connected to the Australian landscape. For Project 7, he created two major museum works and a series of photographs taken during walks outside Broken Hill. Long’s work 'A straight hundred mile walk' in Australia from this project was recently shown in his retrospective exhibition at the Tate Modern in London.
