Paris — New York

Richard Serra

January 13 – March 12, 2022
Au salon
13 rue de Téhéran, Paris
Richard Serra continues to produce rigorous and intense engravings. His two new compositions, entitled Backstop, combine etchings and the use of paintsticks on a double panel exploring mass and equilibrium, as is often the case in his sculpture.

In addition to these new works, we are exhibiting a number of engravings from the Composite suite, conceived in 2018-19, the printing of which was delicate, requiring many months of effort. They combine aquatint and paintstick applied via screen-printing to produce a texture with an impressive density.

This exhibition of etchings by Richard Serra at Galerie Lelong & Co., prepared in collaboration with the Gemini G.E.L studio in California, is testimony to a longstanding relationship with the artist and his work, dating back more than 30 years.

Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1938. He lives and works in New York.
