Long Description:
The American artist Marco Polo "Mark" di Suvero is an abstract expressionist sculptor and 2010 National Medal of Arts recipient (born on September 18, 1933 in Shanghai, China). His early works were large outdoor pieces that incorporated wooden timbers from demolition buildings, tires, scrap metal and structural steel. This exploration has transformed over time into a focus on H-beams and heavy steel plates. Many of the pieces contain sections that are allowed to swing and rotate giving the overall forms a considerable degree of motion. He prides himself on his hands-on approach to the fabrication and installation of his work. Di Suvero pioneered the use of a crane as a sculptor's working tool.
