Mark di Suvero is arguably the most important American construction sculptor alive today. And no locale is better suited to di Suvero's soaring, space-defining steel sculptures as the four hundred-acre sculpture park of Storm King Art Center, Mountainville, New York, fifty-five miles north of Manhattan in the Hudson River Valley. This generously illustrated volume surveys di Suvero's career with its focus on the artist's work at Storm King. Storm King Art Center is the leading sculpture park in the United States. This volume charts the twenty-year relationship between artist and site, culminating in the 1995-96 exhibition at Storm King. No other site has served di Suvero so well for so long, and few other artists have been so closely associated with Storm King Art Center as Mark di Suvero. In a lively essay, illuminated by ninety-five color plates, acclaimed art historian Irving Sandler traces di Suvero's development from the cast-bronze sculptures and constructions of heavy wood beams and other founds objects of the 1950s and early 1960s to the monumental steel structures he has created for the past thirty years. Sandler also relates di Suvero's life to his art, discussing the artist as humanist, romantic, American, worker, socially conscious citizen, and - above all - poet. .
