I went gallery hopping Saturday and stopped by the Richard Serra show at Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea. Having never been a big fan of Serra, I have to admit I was stunned as soon as I walked into the gallery. Those huge slabs of leaning steel makes one wonder how they got the massive sections inside the building, much less assemble them. Walking through the maze of thick rusted metal gives a visual effect very similar to those deep sandstone slot canyons in Utah.

Though I'm not a total Serra convert, I was very impressed with this show. Just the enormity alone is worth the visit.
