Alyson Shotz is an American artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Born in Glendale, Arizona, in 1964. She graduated with a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1987 and an MFA from the University of Washington in 1991.
Alyson Shotz investigates concepts of space, light and perception with sculptures made from a range of synthetic materials such as mirror, glass beads, plastic lenses, thread and steel wire.
In The New York Times, Karen Rosenberg wrote: "Ms. Shotz evokes natural phenomena with accumulations of beads, pins and other common materials...Often they respond to the challenge of visualizing concepts from theoretical physics (string theory, dark matter)."
