The Man of Steel Returns

Richard Serra has not one, but two, shows at Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea, New York this year. The 21st gallery has one monster sculpture you can get lost in — "Inside-Out":

My only quibble are the visible spot welds at the base of some of the plates. The 24th Steer gallery has four installations, all worth the visit — "7 Plates 6 Angles":

These are solid chunks of forged steel, rough edges and all- "Grief and Reason (for Walter)":

This field of plates was really wonderful to walk through-

The last piece was the most disappointing only because of the tape on the floor, don't touch! — "Counterweights":

Up through March 2014 — go see.
