The Sage Colleges
Reception Friday, September 7, 5-9pm
The combination of natural elements and man-made materials has long fascinated sculptors. John Van Alstine carries the union to a new plane
and creates an aesthetically stunning marriage of stone and metal. Centuries-old stone united with contemporary metals meld into an
innovative perceptual schema that is unique to Van Alstine. Seemingly precarious in their placement, they are in fact well rooted.
What look like spontaneous optical effects are structured perceptual statements that create an ambiguous illusion.
