Richard Serra

Although I have always really liked the steel plates walls done by Richard Serra (1939- ) it wasn’t until I experienced his installations at the Dia Beacon in New York that I was completely convinced of his genius.  I think the groupings of interior installations intensified the spatial power.  It sure worked for me.  I like the blue collar aspect of this art – a long way from a Raoul Dufy painting or drawing.  I’m not too sure what I think of Serra’s drawings – I like that they’re powerful, but really? Are you Serious?  I wonder what kind of architect Serra would have made – probably a dam good one (!).
