Richard Serra

"Between the Torus and Sphere" and "Paths and Edges"
May 31, 2007July 13, 2007

At 67, Richard Serra is at the top of his game. With the permanent installation of 8 massive steel sculptures in Spain at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, numerous public and private commissions, and an upcoming retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, his chapter in the annals of art history is guaranteed. In addition to being a sculptor, Serra has been making prints at Gemini G.E.L. in Los Angeles for over thirty years. He returns to the workshop often to draw and to collaborate with Master Printer Xavier Fumat, leaving behind greasy remnants of Paintstik on every surface of the artist studio and exciting new images. A series of five recent etchings, Between the Torus and the Sphere, will be on view at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl from May 31 through July 13, 2007 along with a selection of "preview proofs" from Paths and Edges, Serra's newest project to emerge from his April 2007 visit to Gemini.
