Richard Serra is among the leading artists of his generation. Known for his large-scale, site-specific sculptures, the artist has consistently produced drawings throughout his decades long career. Since 1971, the artist has employed black paintstick (compressed oil paint, wax, and pigment) to produce drawings that resolutely defy any metaphorical or emotive associations, yet which manifest the notions of time, materiality, and process that characterize his work.
On view at David Zwirner will be new drawings originating in works that were first presented in Serra’s 2017 exhibition at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
