Richard Serra is one of the preeminent sculptors of his generation, known for tough, monumental metal pieces that orchestrate spaces like architecture, inviting viewers to move around and through them. Trained at the Yale School of Art in the early 1960s with classmates Frank Stella, Chuck Close, and Nancy Graves, he has been called “cerebral, single-minded, austere, as steely and uncompromising as his work.” His 65-feet-tall, 360-ton Connector at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa was commissioned by Henry Segerstrom in 2006. Paths and Edges #1 is from a series of etchings he made in the following year with the renowned Los Angeles print workshop Gemini G. E. L.
