Artist highlight | A public installation by Alyson Shotz

Fri Jul 24, 2020

In 2015, the Halsey Institute presented Force of Nature, a solo exhibition of work by Alyson Shotz. A year later, she created a public installation called Scattering Screen.

Scattering Screen was a site-specific commission for the San Antonio Botanical Garden by Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum in 2016. The work is now in the collection of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The work is an intricate and delicate wall of stainless-steel circles woven together. The work interacts with its surroundings by reflecting and distorting the natural world into tiny, shifting pieces. It questions the solidity of the its surroundings and weaves a new perception of reality.
