Richard Serra - Industrial Strength

Lyn Harris of Perfumer H

Famed minimalist Richard Serra, perhaps best known for his site-specific sculptures, has created works that span the mediums, including drawing and video, and that cross the continents from America to Asia.

The single most important characteristic of his art is its pure physicality; the presence of his work, either because of materials or the site, is always insistent and, at times, unsettling. Frequently using industrial materials, Serra's sculptures evoke a sense of rawness while their towering heights and simple lines forcefully transgress into the viewer's space.

“The steel and the space, or the object and the void, become one and the same.”

—Richard Serra
