Art critic, Rick Brettell of the Dallas News, highlights the flux of high-contrast, contemporary art now showing in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas.
In addition to the Ross Blackner exhibition at Dallas Contemporary and Donald Sultan's The Disaster Paintings at the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth, Brettell highlights the Nasher Sclupture Center's Richard Serra Exhibition.
Of the three, he says the "Nasher Sculpture Center has the most extreme -- and, for that reason alone, the most aesthetically powerful -- of the three exhibitions, with an important selection of the monumental "prints" by sculptor Richard Serra."
He goes on to say that "the  prints are so visually heavy and large that they approach the sheer physicality of sculpture. Their shapes -- some swooping curves, others masses of black in various blocks of form -- are so powerful in the room that the Nasher's own seminal sculpture by Serra almost recedes from our visual world."
Richard Serra: Prints was made available to the museum from the larger collection of Jordan Schnitzer and the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, a Portland, Ore., non-profit whose mission it is to make the contemporary prints and multiples from its collections accessible to qualified museums in diverse communities.
