Richard Serra

American , 1939 -

Born in San Francisco in 1939, Richard Serra’s studies have included the University of California at Berkeley and Santa Barbara and Yale University, where he received his Master of Fine Arts degree. He traveled to Paris and Italy where he was given his first solo exhibition at Galleria La Salita in Rome in 1966. Also in 1966, he moved to New York where his contemporaries included, Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt, Robert Smithson, Walter De Maria and Carl Andre.

Serra is best known for his minimalist sculptures. He mainly works with industrial materials such as steel and lead. In his prints, Serra works the surface of the copper plate by building layer upon layer of Paintstick and lithographic crayon. He then either pours the molten material or rubs the solid material onto a plate flat on the floor of his studio, permitting him to press the material through an aluminum screen, often using his feet.
