Richard Serra | Junction/Cycle

These pieces by Richard Serra are currently on display at the Gagosian Gallery. The medium used to create these sculptures was waterproof steel. The steel has been oxidized, making the pieces a bright orange color. I like these sculptures because even though they are considered to be two pieces, they complement each other and work together to create one unified piece. Collectively, the Junction/Cycle looks like a triskelion, which is a symbol with three branches, legs, or angles that are positioned in such a way so that the symbol looks like it is in constant forward motion.
