Richard Serra: Weights and Levels

March 2, 2010April 17, 2010

Richard Serra once again pushes the boundaries of printmaking with five new large-scale etchings. These prints are evidence of this renowned artist’s continued ability to convey on paper the weight and monumentality of his sculpture. Over the years, Serra has worked closely with Gemini master printers to develop new techniques for creating astonishing texture in his etchings. The resulting rough, raised surfaces – the texture of which was derived from rubbings of asphalt road paving – compel viewers to experience the prints in a very physical, three-dimensional manner.
