Opening Saturday, June 11, 2022, The Hyde Collection presents Transformations: The Art of John Van Alstine.
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. At the intersection between wild nature and technology, Van Alstine works at the nexus of natural forces and the manmade. This career retrospective examines recurrent themes drawn from Greek and Roman mythology, celestial navigation, and the human figure in Western art. He responds to the tension between Nature and the American drive to command and shape the environment to their will. The curator for the exhibition is Caroline M. Welsh.
The exhibition is open to the public from June 11–September 18, 2022.
