RICHARD SERRA STILL FROM "HAND CATCHING LEAD"
Richard Serra (b.1939) is one of the most important and audacious sculptors of the 20th century.
His forms are minimal yet the size and weight are always grand and imposing.
Serra’s sculptures are increasingly site-specific and rarely domestically proportioned.
Over the course of his career he has occasionally turned to print-making as an alternate yet complementary mode of expression.
While many of his prints are abstractions in black, this image has a dual significance in his oeuvre.
“Hand Catching Lead”, created in 1968, was Serra’s first film and involves a hand trying to catch morsels of lead seemingly dropped from the top of the frame. Lead, whether molten or rolled into sheets, was his material of choice for much of the 1960’s and 70’s.
Because of his limited output, Serra prints perform strongly on the secondary market.
Caviar20 strongly recommends visiting DIA:Beacon to see one of the most impressive permanent exhibitions of Serra’s work.
