The reclusive artist recreates his 1994 artwork ’Muddy Water Circle’ at Frieze Masters
While exhibitors were setting up their booths in readiness for the opening Frieze Masters, reclusive artist Richard Long arrived with buckets of mud from Dartmoor and started recreating his 1994 work, Muddy Water Circle, on a wall of the Lisson Gallery’s stand. It sold within hours and was a major talking point at the fair. Applied by hand, the work is part of Long’s ongoing interest in recreating the experience of a landscape within the confines of a gallery. Here, we see it in the making.
