Richard Serra: Drawings for The courtauld

 

19 September 2013 – 12 January 2014

Serra Transparency Number 3Richard Serra transparencySerra, Transparency #6


Richard Serra: Drawings for The Courtauld presents twelve of Serra’s most recent drawings, created especially for this installation at The Courtauld Gallery.


Rising to prominence on the New York art scene more than forty years ago, Serra is now celebrated internationally, notably for his groundbreaking sculptures and for his radical approach to drawing.


Serra’s Drawings for The Courtauld are extraordinarily powerful works. Produced using dense black crayon on transparent plastic sheets, their forms only just seem to cohere, as if still in the process of creation. Serra’s innovative technique pushes the boundaries of drawing in new directions.

 

This is an opportunity to see radical new drawings by one of the most important and revered
artists working today.
