Work from her oeuvre.
“Alyson Shotz’s sculptures perk up a decades-old post-Minimalist idiom with a dash of pop science. The works in ”Phase Shift,” her fourth solo show at the gallery, are her strongest yet.
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
