Richard Serra is a contemporary Minimalist artist known for his monumental steel sculptures. Often daunting in scale, Richard Serra’s swooping architectural curves often provoke dizziness and disorientation as viewers walk through their winding passages. Though he also makes paintings and prints, it is Serra’s exploration of the properties of unconventional materials—such as Splash (1968–1970), a series using molten lead, and Belts (1966–1967), sculptures of vulcanized rubber—gradually increased the scale of his work. Like Sol Lewitt and Carl Andre, Richard Serra’s attention to materiality has been the hallmark of his practice. “It was the first time I looked at sculpture seriously,” Serra said of visiting Brancusi’s studio in Paris. “I really responded to the strength and simplicity and abstraction of the work.”

About Richard Serra

Richard Serra was the second of three sons born to a Russian Jewish mother and a Spanish father. As a young boy, he lived with his family amidst the sand dunes of San Francisco. Staying mostly within the boundaries of his home life, he knew little of the outside world, let alone the fine arts. His earliest sparks of creativity came from spending time at the shipyards, where his father worked as a pipefitter.
