Gagosian Gallery, New York Acquired by the present owner from the above in 2007
"I was using paint with a certain disdain, with the attitude that any material was as good as any other material. And once you find that you’re not using paint for its illusionistic capabilities or its color refraction but as a material that happens to be “red,” you can use any material as equally relevant." Richard Serra
