Alyson Shotz: Drawing Through Space
The Warehouse Gallery
November 19, 2009 – February 20, 2010
With the assistance of Syracuse University students, Brooklyn-based artist Alyson Shotz created her works on-site, thus turning The Warehouse Gallery into a form of laboratory. Best known for sculptures made out of everyday materials that address issues of space, light, volume, time, and movement, Shotz’s use of steel wire and colorful thread or yarn is a means of combining sculpture with drawing. Strikingly beautiful, her wire sculptures and wall drawings project optical experiences where questions of perception and misperception lead to further examination of the impact of twenty-first century technology on the arts.
Alyson Shotz: Drawing Through Space is made possible with generous support from Francis H. Williams. Additional support for the lecture is provided by the Syracuse University Sculpture Program.
