Richard Serra
Vertical and Horizontal Reversals

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new drawings by Richard Serra at its 537 West 20th Street gallery.


Serra began creating drawings in 1971, and they continue to constitute an autonomous part of his practice. Often large in scale, the artist's drawings are typically made with a thick impasto of black paintstick (or, more recently, lithographic crayons melted and formed into a brick), which is applied to a surface in broad, dense passages. Serra's exclusive use of black in these abstract works absorbs and reduces light, conveying a sense of weight, gravity, and mass.
