John Van Alstine has been described as an abstract artist with a keen sense of composition, who evokes narratives from inanimate objects, and a sculptor who finds the balance and energy in the moment. Van Alstine works at the nexus of natural forces and the manmade, at the intersection between wild nature and technology. This career retrospective examines recurrent themes drawn from Greek and Roman mythology, celestial navigation, and the human figure in Western art as he responds to the tension between Nature and the American drive to command and shape the environment to their will.
