Lot Essay

"The light-killing blackness makes for delicate balances of...infinite depth. ...You don’t look at this art; you give yourself over to it. The payoff of abiding its deathliness is a sense of being brought fully, tinglingly alive."
—P. Schjeldahl, "Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective," The New Yorker, 2011
