Product Description:
Famous worldwide for his exquisite sculptures that are an extraordinary combination of fluidity with monolithic bulk, the renowned Sculptor Richard Serra needs no formal introduction. He is best known as an American minimalist sculptor and talented video artist, famous for his works with large scale assemblies of sheet metals or compressed steel, which is done in his factory itself. Richard is extremely fond of two materials, which he get to notice in his creations, which are all referred to as masterpieces by themselves. Compressed large size steel structures and natural spaces are wonderfully used in his creations for sites located in different cities across the globe. This video artist is well known for his works in monumental arcs, ellipses and spirals which engage viewers in a completely altered and different experience of space.

Several videos have been made on the manufacture and effective use of his favorite material, steel. In all his creations and from what we observe in the video, Serra loves to explore physical construction any specific art piece along with examining the lives of steel mill. In this program, viewers get to see the inside of Serra’s creative process as he documents his work at all the different locations around the globe.
