Richard Serra in Chelsea

Saw his show in Chelsea a few weeks ago.

He's partially moved from curves to works consisting of large steel slabs.

The first piece has slabs 9" thick, ~ 10 ft high

The first shot inadequately shows the scale

As usual I'm most interested in the details, e.g., where the slabs "touch"

The other pice consisted of four steel blocks (the blur on the left is an adult, just to get a sense of scale).

Again, I was drawn to the detailed textures (damage?)
