  • Catalogue Essay

    I have been drawing in notebooks for at least 25 years, a habit, a ritual, a practice... In 1989 I began a series of trips to Iceland which led to a sculpture project on Videy Island, close to the harbor of Reykjavik... It so happened that I made more notebook drawings on this project than on most,... I filled dozens of notebooks with drawings of both the project in process and the project completed. The diverse sketchbook material became the basis for this series of prints. Richard Serra

  • Artist Biography

    Richard Serra

    American • 1938

    Richard Serra is an American artist commonly associated with Minimalism and the Process Art movement. Though perhaps best known for his monumental works made from industrial steel, Serra has also worked extensively in painting and printmaking. After attending the University of California, Berkeley, he earned his MFA from Yale, where he became friends and collaborators with classmates such as Frank Stella, Chuck Close and Nancy Graves, to whom Serra was married for five years. Later working in New York, Serra was inspired by Minimalist contemporaries such as Carl Andre and Sol LeWitt, who valued the work of creation more than the finished artwork itself.

    Serra’s work is installed permanently at the Guggenheim Bilbao, and can also be found in the collections of Dia:Beacon, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Tate, London.
