Serra's ongoing series of Torqued Ellipses (1996 -), two of which are included here, remains tied to the artistic vocabulary Serra has developed over the past 30 years, but also reflects a significant departure. While the physicality of space has long been a concern for the artist, in these works space has become his material. The design of the pieces, which the artist calls “vessels,” is based on two perfect and identical ellipses that overlap at an angle. The curved planes of steel lean in and out in a continuum, creating a form not seen before in architecture or sculpture.
