Alyson Shotz


Thread Drawing (Untitled), (2009)

Installation with thread and pins on wall


Alyson Shotz creates works in a variety of media, from large-scale installations to digital photography. Her work focuses on making palpable the shape of space and inhabits a tradition of seeing our culture through the perception of nature. The light reflecting wall drawing exhibited here consists of computer renderings of virtual space transformed into a two dimensional drawing made out of needles and threads which reflect the light.  The final work constitutes a reformulation of volume into a two dimensional work.
