ALYSON SHOTZ | DEC 8, 2014
Monday, December 8, 2014
Inside the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
Alyson Shotz’s practice examines the properties and interactions of light, gravity, mass, and space. Shotz bridges disciplines in her work, drawing on scientific methods, mathematical principles, and literature, among other diverse fields. Often employing nontraditional materials such as glass beads, linen thread, stainless-steel filaments, and welded aluminum to create large-scale abstract sculptures, Shotz expands upon conventional notions of sculptural space and form.
Shotz’s work will be featured in the exhibition Force of Nature, May 22 – July 11, 2015. Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature marks the artist’s most ambitious show to date. More than fifty works in various mediums will be on view throughout the Halsey Institute, representing the range of Shotz’s artistic output. The exhibition includes a monumental sculptural installation; a site-specific, volumetric wall drawing; and a collaborative animation, as well as digital and traditional prints, photographs, and ceramics.
