In his sculptures, drawings, and prints, Richard Serra redefines the surroundings of a given space and challenges the viewer's perception of that space. His ability to do so lies within his skillful exploitation of the properties of different materials, and this is clearly demonstrated in this new body of work. To create most of the images, Serra drew onto a thick copper etching plate with either litho crayon or his usual drawing medium, Paintstik. Applying it with tremendous energy and force, Serra built up layer upon layer of grease in order to create a heavily textured and energized form.
