Experience the energy of Mark di Suvero’s large-scale sculptures in the privacy of your collection.

Mark di Suvero’s abstract expressionist sculptures are on display in city parks, university campuses, and institutional sculpture gardens across the world. The works are oxymoronic: though using salvaged industrial materials, di Suvero composes sweeping, free-flowing artworks that frame the spaces in which they rest. Directly influenced by Abstract Expressionist painters such as Franz Kline and Jackson Pollock, the artist effortlessly captures the flexibility of movement with inflexible materials.

Untitled (2000) showcases the dynamism of di Suvero’s large-scale sculptures on paper. This serigraph repurposes an image of di Suvero’s beam sculpture foregrounding a cityscape. Transforming the photograph with brilliant neon shades of green, orange, and pink, the artist renders the sculptural forms in painterly strokes of ink that emphasize the geometric negative spaces between beam lines.

The artwork of Mark di Suvero (b.1933) is included in many public collections, including the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others.
