Mark di Suvero is internationally known for his monumental, outdoor sculptures. His sculptural compositions emphasize the balance and intersection of competing linear forms and employ sharp angular lines, curving cores, and teetering elements that often allow for rotating or swinging movements. The sculpture on view here is comprised of two parts. The upper portion is perfectly balanced on the vertical support, resting in a slight indentation in the steel and held in place by its own weight. This work recalls the beam-like constructions and the anticipatory momentum found in his large-scale sculptural projects.
