Robert Long, Stone Line, 1980
From the National Galleries of Scotland:
This was one of Long’s first works made of slate, which came from Delabole in Cornwall. The sculpture is an example of the artist bringing objects connected with his walks into a gallery. Unlike many of his works which are made outdoors and exist only in photographs, this piece is permanent. The line is a central image in Long’s work. It recalls a path or a journey. It echoes the walks that Long has made all over the world.
