I watched this interview last week on the Charlie Rose Show, and it is one of the best interviews with an artist that I have ever watched. American sculptor Richard Serra has a 40 year retrospective currently showing at the New York City Museum of Modern Art as we speak. His 3-dimentional metal sculptures are single-fired pieces, none have been welded together, and it represents not only a sense of art and how shapes and patterns and themes and space inspire and affect the human experience, but it is also about understanding and utilizing the forces of nature, of gravity and resistance, of pieces not welded or glued together yet are put together in wonderful ways.

As Charlie Rose opens the interview tghis way, "As a child, Serra remembers being transfixed by watching a boat float on water. Now, he makes steel float on air. He says that the subject of his sculpture is the viewer's experience in walking through and around it. And, he says that he is not creating static objects, but shaping space."

What is brilliant about this video interview is two things. One, during a lot of the presentation, Rose interviews Serra at the New York City Museum of Modern Art in and around his own creations.

Secondly, the other aspect of this video interview that is brilliant is that Serra is able to completely and fully explain his art, both the physical characteristics as well as the intended affect on the human experience that comes from his work. There are a lot of artists out there who are either incapable or unwilling to explain their art. Serra is not such a person, as he holds nothing back in his desire for folks to understand his work. Because of that, these interviews are wonderful for those that already have a current knowledge of art, as well as those of you who want to learn about art, or learn more about it than you already know. All is explained, and amongst the artist's pieces to boot.

Took me awhile to find time to get to these, Derek, but wanted to say 'Thanks for Sharing!!!' These are amazing interviews ... Serra is very articulate and it was interesting to listen to the artist describe the very art surrounding him. Am going to keep an eye on my local PBS and hopefully be able to catch this in another airing. Grazie!
