Richard Serra's Inside Out at the Gagosian Gallery

Richard Serra’s Inside Out at the Gagosian Gallery

I am familiar with Richard Serra because he has a sculpture, The Wave, at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle.

And when I was at Storm King Art Center, I saw his Schunnemunk Fork.

So I was delighted to learn that the Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea was showing another of Serra’s massive steel sculptures.  Called Inside Out, you felt invited to follow its curves like a maze, albeit a short one.  Standing in the narrow gap between the high walls was similar to being in a slot canyon.  I loved this.

Wave by Richard Serra, Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle

The Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park is one of Seattle’s best bargain destinations.  Admission is free!  It’s located right on the waterfront overlooking Elliott Bay, so you can enjoy superb views while you view the art.
