Richard Serra: Prints 1972-2007

Edited by Silke von Berswordt-Wallrabe.

Richard Serra has pursued a keen dialogue with the possibilities of printing since 1972, in the early stages of his work as an artist, and has now amassed a print oeuvre to rival his sculptural achievement. As with the sculptures, what he has sought to elicit from printing's potential is not simply the duplication of imagery on paper, but a furtherance of each technique's intrinsic material character. Whether the technique is etching, lithograph or silkscreen, the aim is to make an insistent physical presence to be encountered by the viewer's entire body--and consequently some of these works reach up to 80 inches square in surface area. Implementing such basic forces as gravity, instability and potential motion, Serra's graphic works assert space, and human activity in space. They may also be occasioned politically, as works referencing Malcolm X, Bill Clinton and, more recently, Abu Ghraib indicate. The printwork gathered in Catalogue of Works ranges from early lithographs related to Serra's "wall props" of the 1970s, which represent his first graphic experiments, to the large and sensual paintstick on screenprints of the 1980s to 1990s works such as the Hreppholar series, through to all works completed at the end of 2007.
One of the most respected sculptors of the twentieth century, Richard Serra, born in 1939 in San Francisco, is famed internationally for his site-specific sculptural environments. While best known for these works, he has explored similar concerns with process, the body and mass in film, drawing and printmaking. Serra lives and works in both New York City and Nova Scotia
