Richard Serra Drawings features nineteen works selected by the artist from his recent series ‘Orchard Street’. The title refers to the address of his home on the North Fork of Long Island in New York, where Serra has his drawing studio and where he currently spends most of his time. Serra has been drawing since he was four years old and has often stressed the importance of drawing as a foundation of his work. A means of exploring formal and perceptual relationships between the artwork and viewer, it plays a crucial role in his investigation of new concepts and methods. Like his sculptures, Serra’s drawing practice, with its own distinctive physicality, conveys a sense of monumentality, weight and density. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by James Lawrence.
