    Art in the Garden Featuring Alyson Shotz

    Blue Star Contemporary and the San Antonio Botanical Garden are delighted to announce Alyson Shotz as the artist for their 2016 Art in The Garden collaboration. Brooklyn- based Shotz will be in attendance at the opening reception on Thursday, June 30, 2016.


    For her yearlong exhibition at the Garden, Shotz has conceived a newly commissioned largescale, freestanding steel sculpture, Scattering Screen, which will interact with viewers and the Garden’s natural surroundings. Known for ethereal artworks that build on natural phenomena and play with human perception, her piece for the Garden is a site-specific installation that encourages viewers to engage with the Garden landscape in new ways.


    Of this new work, Shotz says, "Scattering Screen is a sculpture that explores the space between things. The small mirrored circles reflect light and scatter the visible surroundings into thousands of tiny pieces, shifting and moving across the sculpture like an analogue screen. The play between the reflections and spaces between reflections draws attention to the idea of solidity itself as the sculpture creates an optical continuum where negative and positive spaces continually intertwine.
