About: Alyson Shotz is an American artist based in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1987 and an MFA from the University of Washington in 1991. Alyson Shotz investigates issues of perception and space with sculptures made from a range of synthetic materials such as mirror, glass beads, plastic lenses, thread and steel wire. In The New York Times, Karen Rosenberg wrote: “Ms. Shotz evokes natural phenomena with accumulations of beads, pins and other common materials…Often they respond to the challenge of visualizing concepts from theoretical physics (string theory, dark matter).” Her works are in the collections of The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, The Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art and Whitney Museum of American Art.

“Alyson Shotz’s sculptures perk up a decades-old post-Minimalist idiom with a dash of pop science. Ms. Shotz evokes natural phenomena with accumulations of beads, pins and other common materials. She isn’t alone in this — Tara Donovan comes to mind — but her creations have a geekier, less arbitrary aspect. Often they respond to the challenge of visualizing concepts from theoretical physics (string theory, dark matter)…” – Karen Rosenberg for the New York Times.
