March 17 - April 15, 2006
Opening Reception: Friday, March 17, 6-8pm
Derek Eller Gallery is pleased to present Coalescence, a new sculpture by Alyson Shotz.
Coalescence, made of clear glass beads strung onto steel wire, is inspired by looking at images of space and mass interacting. It alludes to chaotic and there'll happenings at the quantum level. Natural change as a result of ambient light is an important element in this sculpture and is an important influence that can be experienced in many of Shotz’s other works, such as The Shape of Space or Mirror Fence.
Shotz is currently The Bob and Happy Doran Artist in Residence at the Yale university Art Gallery. Her work can also be seen in the exhibition “Uneasy Nature” at the Weatherspoon Art Museum through May 28, 2006. Her work has also been included in shows at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University, the High Museum of Art, P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center, Socrates Sculpture Park, and the Tang Teaching Museum.
