Paths and Edges #12 2007: etching on Mohachi paper by American minimalist sculptor Richard Serra (b. 1939). According to internet sources, his earliest work was abstract and process-based made by hurling molten lead in large splashes against the wall and floor of a studio or exhibition space, rolling of the material into dense, metal logs. Starting in 1969 he began to cut, prop or stack lead sheets, rough timber, etc.to create structures, some very large, supported only by their own weight. His Cutting Device: Base Plate Measure (1969) consists of an assemblage of heterogeneous materials (lead, wood, stone and steel) into two parallel cuts, strewn around in a chance configuration.In Malmo Role (1984), a four-foot-square steel plate, one and a half inches thick, bisects a corner of the room and is prevented from falling by a short cylindrical prop wedged into the corner of the walls.But he is better known for his minimalist constructions from large rolls and sheets of metal (COR-TEN-Steel). Many of these pieces are self-supporting and emphasize the weight and nature of the materials. Rolls of lead are designed to sag over time.
