Alyson Shotz


Fascinated by the physics of the natural world, Alyson Shotz' work examines phenomena that are often considered inscrutable-gravity, light, space, and time. Using synthetic materials such as glass beads, stainless steel, and mirrors, Shotz renders mathematical and molecular structures on a monumental scale. Her sculptures are intricate, ethereal, and responsive to a site's conditions. While intellectual and metaphorical, her work unequivocally evokes a bodily response and, in turn, encourages a new awareness of our physical experience of perception and place.
