About the event

'The Tide is High', an exhibition of new works by Richard Long, will be unveiled at Alan Cristea Gallery, London, in November 2018 and will remain on view until 5 January 2019.The high tide and the huge steep mud banks of the River Avon at low tide have been a major influence on Long since his childhood, and it is where he still gathers the source material for his works on paper. 'The Tide is High' is a series of prints based on drawings made from mud taken from the river in Bristol, the city where Long was born and continues to live.

The prints depict rivulets of muddy water; Long enjoys working with this mud for its tactility and material simplicity, as well as its significance as a natural force which has traced the earth's surface for over a millennia.

These new prints will be shown alongside some of the large carborundum relief prints that Long made in 2014, but has never before exhibited. These prints were created from 4 x 8 foot aluminium plates and printed in mud-coloured ink as well as vibrant grass greens and fire reds.

This is Richard Long's second solo exhibition and second print project with the Alan Cristea Gallery.
