Mark di Suvero began showing his sculpture in the late 1950’s and is one of the most important American artists to emerge from the Abstract Expressionist era. His sculptures have been exhibited in city-wide exhibitions in Paris, France, Venice, Italy, New York City, Stuttgart, Germany, Nice and Valence, France and was the first living artist to be shown in Le Jardin des Tuileries in Paris. Storm King Art Center mounted major exhibitions of di Suvero in 1985 and once again in 1995 and 1996. As the eminent Art historian, Barbara Rose has written: “[di Suvero’s] genius lies in his unique ability to fuse the excitement of the momentary – expressed in the potential for imminent change of the swinging, twirling and precariously poised elements with the gravity of a timeless geometry and the engineered ability and intuitive equilibrium that his hard-won mastery of structural balances makes possible.”
