Gagosian is pleased to present an exhibition of new drawings by Richard Serra. This series, initiated in the spring of 1996 and completed at the end of the summer of 1997, marks a departure for Serra’s works on paper. Although they use the same media as previous drawings, both the way in which the oilstick is employed and the resulting surface textures are dramatically different in these completed works. The surfaces are built-up, active, and dense; they appear to be virtually three-dimensional.
These drawings were created during the same time period in which Serra was fabricating Torqued Ellipses, which is currently on view at the Dia Center for the Arts in Chelsea. This new body of drawings represents Serra’s first in-depth investigation of round and elliptical forms and their relationship to the rectangular paper format.
A fully illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
