Gemini G.E.L. is very pleased to announce Reversals, an exhibition of ten new Paintstik works. Serra’s Reversals are comprised of two sheets of handmade paper to which a Paintstik and silica mixture is applied by hand. These sheets are then framed as a single work. In his signature style, Serra uses black Paintstik to build bold, densely layered forms that absorb light, creating a strong sense of gravity, weight and mass.
Serra has long been acclaimed for his challenging, innovative work and his large-scale, site-specific sculpture. Employing industrial materials, he explores the dialogue between artwork, environment and viewer. Since 1972, Serra has collaborated on over 250 editions with Gemini.
