An Oldie

Taken in May 2015 at Storm King Art Center. I love the way the tree seems to dwarf the sculpture, when in fact the sculpture is much taller than the tree. I also like the bands of color: the green grass and foliage; the blue sky; and the grey clouds.

The sculpture is called Pyramidian and it was created by Mark di Suvero. It’s made of steel and is 65 x 46 x 46 ft. and is a gift of the Ralph E. Ogden Foundation.

According to the Storm King Art Center web site:

Pyramidian is the tallest di Suvero sculpture in Storm King’s permanent collection. Di Suvero began working on it in his Long Island City, New York studio in 1986. It came to Storm King unfinished in 1995 and was installed for di Suvero’s retrospective exhibition. At that time, the space inside the pyramid was empty, and a 60-foot beam was placed in the field parallel to the sculpture. For a time, the beam served as a bench for viewing Pyramidian. In 1998, di Suvero finished the work onsite. He used the 60-foot beam to create an inverted T-shape, suspended by cables inside the pyramid. Today, it serves as a visual anchor in the South Fields.
