Detail "Wake" by Richard Serra

Detail "Wake" by Serra, SAM Olympic Sculpture Park

The hull of the ship just off shore in yesterday's photo reminded me of this nearby sculpture installation at the Olympic Sculpture Park. This is an abstract detail of one of many 14 foot tall pieces that comprise the work (for a full view of the sculpture in context, please click here to visit my More Seattle Stuff page).. The link in yesterdays photo will take you to photos of this work's installation, which was involved and complex. Of all the pieces on display in the Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park, "Wake" by Richard Serra seems most tempting for admirers to touch. Signs and attendants have to ward off handprints, footprints, and scratches to the textured patina.

I can totally see the connection! In fact, it looks as if it's the continuity of it. This is a beautiful piece!
