While his wooden sculptures in the late 1950s were still influenced by constructivism, Mark di Suvero (b. 1933 in Shanghai) began from 1964 to make expressive, space-filling outdoor sculptures from steel joists and other other steel components. In spite of the weight of their materiality, his works communicate a spatial dynamism in which Kinetic Art and Abstract Expressionism seem to merge. The works of Mark di Suvero are represented in the collections of the most important international museums, and with more than 100 large-scale sculptures in public spaces all over the world, his work, as no other, represents the face of Abstract Expressionist sculpture.
