Bloomendaal, Mark Reigelman

 

PROJECT PROFILE:

Artist: Mark Reigelman
Title: Bloomendaal
Materials: Corten Steel, Cataylized Paint
Fabrication + Installation: Demiurge
Engineering: KL&A
Location: Gotham West Apartments, New York, NY

Demiurge was excited to be collaborate with Brooklyn-based artist Mark Reigelman to produce Bloomendaal, slated for installation in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City as part of a new development by Gotham West. A 15 foot tall geometric abstraction of a blooming flower, Bloomendaal is being fabricated from a mix of stainless and weathering steel, commonly referred to by its trade name CORTEN steel, which is a unique alloy developed to form a stable, long-lasting patina. The majority of the sculpture will be constructed from weathering steel, while stainless will form polished accents on the interior of the sculpture, creating a physical and visual contrast between the two materials.
