Richard Serra: Prints

| December 28, 2016 | Calendar

Best known for his groundbreaking, large-scale Cor-Ten steel sculptures, Richard Serra has been making prints since his first collaboration with Gemini G.E.L. in 1972. Through the use of experimental printing techniques and unorthodox materials, such as oilstick and silica, he has continually pushed the boundaries of traditional printmaking.

Many of Serra's prints directly relate to specific sculptures and are the artist's attempts at resolving the multiplicity of viewpoints experienced when walking in, around, or through his sculpture. The large format and rich textural surfaces of his prints evoke the complex tectonic attributes of his steel sculptures, such as weight, compression, stasis, mass, and tension.
