Daily Practice 293/365

Title: "In Richard Serra's Studio"

This spool of metal strapping has been tucked away in the corner of the walk for the longest time. Brought for some purpose long ago, but completely forgotten. Seeing it reminded me of Richard Serra's work, the physicality, the industrial materials, the shapes. Some of his earlier pieces made of lead sheeting were leaned up against the wall, or stacked seemingly precariously. Having walked past this metal for many days, it's only now I realize that Serra's work is referencing the everyday images we rarely stop to consider and really take in.
