Richard Serra’s Verb List Compilation: Actions to Relate to Oneself,” (1967–1968)

I’ve seen Richard Serra’s work on Art21. Tom and I saw a piece of his at the LACMA years ago. We were at SFMOMA for my birthday and I wanted to see his work but I wasn’t totally compelled. So I was surprised when his work left such an impression on me. I was touched. I really understood where his sculptures came from when I experienced the substantial weight of his black textural paint stick drawings.

Here’s a John Tusa interview of Richard Serra that I have yet to listen to. Thanks to Victoria May for Kara Pecknold’s link of her Design One project using Richard Serra’s verb list.
