Richard Serra Drawings at The Met

James Andrew at the Met.

I had the great pleasure of attending “Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective” at the Met this past Tuesday evening—it’s truly a must-see overview of Serra’s drawings spanning nearly 40 years!

Having experienced many of Serra’s monolithic sculptures in person, it was quite interesting to see his process on paper. Here, as with his sculpture, Serra imbues his forms with tremendous force and space-altering purpose—deeply elemental and dynamically charged, his works give evidence to primordial forces that, while they can be felt, remain utterly enigmatic.

Interior design, as you may know, is very much about the manipulation and the perception of space, and so for me it is always rewarding to see the work of masters like Serra. Needless to say, if you are similarly inclined, do head to the Met for this comprehensive and mind blowing exhibition.

Feeling a bit Audrey Hepburn (descending the grand stair case of the Paris opera in Funny Face) – I’m sporting a Tom Ford “Country Jacket” in a dark brown wide wool check and black and white silk pocket square, Turnbull and Asser white and forest green striped cotton oxford cloth shirt with french cuffs , vintage moon stone cuff links, Tom Ford era Gucci black and grey mini hounds tooth check wool pants and chartreuse python belt with silver double horse head buckle, Lanvin high top sneakers in dark green patent black and chartreuse suede, and my fragrance is Creed Windsor.

    Hi James,

    Another classic, Creed Windsor is amazing. A bow tie would have really set this ensemble off?

    Wonderful! A Serra print just went at the BAM auction last week – it was a steal, no reserve. Not to me, sadly.

  4. Ugh how I miss NYC and all the culture so readily available. Would have loved to see Serra’s drawings, right up my alley!

    p.s. Totally impressed and intimidated by your blog. Very nice.
