Richard Long is a birtish sculptor, painter and landscape artists. Several of his works are based around his walks and trails, he particularly creates sculptural pieces within landscapes he explores, as well as using a range of mediums such a photography, text and maps of the landscape he has taken his journey from.
Looking at his work, there is a prominent theme within Long’s work, the aspect of which he reflects his paths he has taken, he shows this through text, presenting his thoughts visually as well as making landscape sculptures using rocks found at the site and then photographed.
Antony Gormley is a British sculptor, known for his works such as the ‘Angel of the North’, a public sculpture placed in the North of England. His works focus of the creation of sculptures that explore the relation of the human body to space at larhe, explicity in large scale installations, where the work becomes a frame through which the viewer becomes the viewed.
Gormley’s work is abstract in the sense that he uses uncoventional buliding materials to create his figurative forms, the way he has created these figures in a crouching position provides apsects of movement, and lifelike characteristics to his anonymous sculptures.

Charity Shop Object/Concept behind it:
This object was bought at a charity shop for 99p, the small clock originally belonged to an old women in reaching her 80s. This clock was part of a collection of mantle clocks she had, ranging from original antique to brick-a-brack items. Her obsession with clocks was apparent as she always feared that time slipped away too fast, and she knew her time was ending. Sadly she passed away last year, her clocks were donated to museums and sold in junk sales, quickly spreading across London. This small clock still continues to move its handles and continues her obsession of watching time pass by.
