Heaven and Earth

While on the subject on environmental issues (CONGRATS ABOUT BEING A FEATURED ARTIST), I want to give a shout out to Richard Long, whose exhibit at the Tate Britain shows his forty-year run with art, words, environment and how he's used all of the above to explore a relationship between time, distance, geography and measurement. I have many images but little time to upload etc. Long is more admirable, to me, than Andy Goldsworthy. And where Ed Ruscha documented every building on the Sunset Strip, Long documented standing stones. Richard Long is to stones as Ed Ruscha is to overbuilt American roads? The show graphics are in --surprise!--Gill, but many of the works's labels are hand-lettered, in pencil, by Long. Awesome.
