Stefan Rurak, Concrete and Steel Dining Table, USA, 2020

Stefan Rurak’s Concrete Steel and Glass Dining Table is now on view in our Tribecca Gallery by appointment. As the table is available by commission, custom dimensions and materials can be accommodated for interior or exterior spaces. Each sculptural table base is unique, demonstrating Rurak’s one-of-a-kind, expressionist aesthetic.

Rurak’s evocative, one-of-a-kind works are the type of collectible pieces built to span generations. Each work conveys movement, action, and intuition. Rurak’s process stems from a diverse range of media, ranging from things as conventional as drawing and painting to performance art. Functional and sculptural, the central column serving as a 360 degree expressionist painting. A combination of paint and pigmented concrete, creates a dynamic impasto, populated by incised and gilded etchings. Rurak uses freeform splashes and stains, applied by hand, to achieve the unique patina on the central steel medallion. The etched drawings that are repeated in his work, both on the steel and the table’s base, are a language of symbols personal to Rurak and akin to an ever-changing signature.

Rurak draws no distinction between art and design – the utilitarian becoming a canvas for his aesthetic endeavor. Each work conveys movement, action, and intuition, providing a stark counterpoint to the meticulous construction and composition of the functional skeleton underneath.
