NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian Gallery presents Junction (2011) and Cycle (2010), two new sculptures by Richard Serra. Serra has pushed the unique sculptural syntax that he developed over the last fifteen years to arrive at entirely new forms in two of his most complex and challenging works to date.

Born in 1938, Richard Serra is one of the most significant artists of his generation. His groundbreaking bodies of work in both sculpture and drawing have been celebrated with major retrospectives at The Museum of Modern Art (“Richard Serra Sculpture Forty Years,” 2007 and “Richard Serra/Sculpture,” 1986) and the current “Richard Serra Drawings: A Retrospective at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which will travel this year to SFMOMA and the Menil Collection in Houston. He has produced large-scale, site-specific sculptures for architectural, urban and landscape settings spanning the globe, from Iceland to New Zealand. In addition to his 2008 MONUMENTA installation Promenade at the Grand Palais in Paris, Serra conceived The Matter of Time, an eight part permanent installation at the Guggenheim Bilbao in 2005.

*Junction (2011) 13’ 11/2”x 75’ 1/2" x 49’ 15/16” (4 x 22.9 x 15.2 m), weatherproof steel.

*Cycle (2010) 14’ 1” x 57’ 6” 1/2" x 55’ 8” (4.3 x 17.5 x 17 m), weatherproof steel

I consider space to be a material. The articulation of space has come to take precedence over other concerns. I attempt to use sculptural form to make space distinct. – Richard Serra
