Richard Serra's Junction / Cycle at the Gagosian



—01. Cycle.


Two new large scale works by Richard Serra are currently on display at the Gagosian Gallery and well worth an hour or so of your time if you happen to be anywhere close by. Junction / Cycle are both sculptures created in the artist's preferred medium of waterproof steel, and in this case the oxidization of the material has turned the sculptures a striking bright orange colour, which offers plenty to those passing through the maze of the pieces themselves. Serra says the sculptures were designed as much with the space between them in mind, as with the form and materials used: "I consider space to be a material. The articulation of space has come to take precedence over other concerns. I attempt to use sculptural form to make space distinct."

Serra's original sculpture was nice. then he cloned it in various forms repeatedly. More of a brand than original art at this point, IMO.
