Serra was a visionary who pushed the boundaries of sculpture by utilizing unconventional materials throughout his illustrious career. He transitioned from working with fiberglass and rubber to his trademark weathered steel, which became synonymous with his monumental curved sculptures. His groundbreaking works have been showcased in two retrospective exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and culminated in what many regard as his magnum opus, Band (2006), displayed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

In a 2011 interview with The Art Newspaper, Serra emphasized that his art was not focused on simplification but rather on exploring the relationship between form, space, and movement. His distinct approach to sculpture challenged conventional norms and captivated audiences worldwide.
