Richard Serra
Line Drawings

Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works on paper by Richard Serra. Collectively titled Line Drawings, these works were made in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia beginning in late 2000 and continuing over five distinct work periods until the summer of 2002.

The drawings are created using a stylus on the reverse side of the paper that is laid over a pool of melted paintstick. "No direct drawing is done on the front of the paper. I don't see the drawing I am making until the paper is pulled off the floor and turned over … I have used various means over the years to avoid known solutions. In this series of line drawings the process is more important to me than analyzing and placing a line in relation to other lines." Richard Serra

A fully illustrated catalogue including an essay by Richard Serra will accompany the exhibition.

Ausstellungsdauer: 14.9. - 19.10.2002
Oeffnungszeiten: Di-Sa 10 - 18 Uhr
