Richard Serra's monumental steel sculptures are among the defining works of art of our time. Serra is wonder fully articulate, whether talking about his early paintings, Brancusi's influence upon him, the historical context in which his work developed, or the public controversies and even hostility his art has engendered. He elucidates how "matter imposes form on form," the unique qualities of steel, and how a space may move simultaneously in two directions--with a lexicon that includes gravitational vectors, open and closed volume, tectonics, conical sections and torquing elipses. An installation of several immensely heavy steel plates (40 tons each) at the Bilbao Museum highlights the art world's man of steel.
