felipe_de_glasse Kyoto, Kyoto MOMA. Richard Long, English, born 1945. Long is the only artist to have been nominated for the Turner Prize 4 times. Either he was so wonderful he kept getting nominated, or else it was a case of "always a bridesmaid, never a bride". I am happy to say he finally got hitched in 1989. He is hard to classify: a sculptor, associated with Land Art, Earth Art, Arte Povera in their various manifestations. He usually works outside in nature manipulating natural forms, but occasionally he uses primal materials in gallery spaces, which may or may not be intended to be permanent, depending on the longevity of a wall and the whim of a museum's chief curator or its board. This big example of his wall art, made from mud and crud, is simply stunning and dominates the atrium of the Kyoto MOMA. Long has often used circular forms in his art, but in Japan it is associated with Zen religious and philosophic ideals. So this work has super double good meaning over here. When in Kyoto, do make a stop at their MOMA. #richardlong #kyoto #kyotomoma #art #englishartists #japan #explorekyoto #explorejapan #turnerprize #circlesinart #sculptor #sculpture #wallart #earthart #landart #artepovera #moma #maleartist #menartists #zen 15min

  •   leoniebarton Miles. One person turned up for you.... just as I was leaving. Did get to sit in my truck and watch her walk over it, then back, then around it, then looking around for an owner, then photographing it, then continuing on her day. It was a lovely moment. I would have missed it, had I not been sitting there contemplating going back to snap the wide again, with you in mind. Thank you, for that little gift. @miles_allen_artist 5h
  •   miles_allen_artist That must have been lovely Leonie, particularly when she photographed it. How great to see someone appreciate your work like that. It might well have made her day too 3h
