This event has ended.

The Paula Cooper Gallery presents new works, including a painting and a monumental steel sculpture, by the preeminent American artist Mark di Suvero.

Mark di Suvero continues to test the limits of large-scale sculpture, engaging space through seemingly weightless compositions of colossal steel beams, torqued metal and kinetic elements. The never-before-seen Paula’s Pleasure, a soaring construction measuring approximately twenty feet in height, is an assemblage of intersecting I-beams tied around a central steel “knot”. The piece invites active contemplation from various angles, shifting our perception of space and sense of balance as we move under and around it.

A 10 x 12-foot painting made of explosive color overlays in swooping patterns will be exhibited in the adjacent gallery. Though known primarily for his sculpture, di Suvero is also an accomplished painter, draftsman and printmaker, creating vibrant works that extend his exploration of line and color in a two-dimensional space.

Di Suvero was born in 1933 in Shanghai, China to Italian parents. In 1941 his family emigrated from China to California, and he moved to New York in 1957.
