Richard Long Ebb Tide Circle, 2016

‘On Wed 4 May, Turner Contemporary welcomed artist Richard Long to the gallery to create a site-specific artwork for Turner Contemporary’s South Terrace wall.

Ebb Tide Circle is the first wall painting Long has made outdoors, and the first made in paint rather than with mud. As with his other wall paintings, Long worked quickly and spontaneously directly onto the surface of the wall using his hands rather than a brush. The resulting painting conveys the energy and speed of his gestures and the physicality of the process of making.’
