Tipping the scales in Chesterwood
Chesterwood presents the exhibition “Tipping the Balance: Contemporary Sculpture by John Van Alstine”, which features Van Alstine’s abstract sculptures forged from steel and stone. Each sculpture is a balancing act that plays with natural forces, gravity and kinetic energy. “My sculpture works on many levels and is open to a variety of interpretations,” Van Alstine said of his work. “I believe its power is generated by the juxtaposition of unclean found objects, layers of association, symbolism and narrative.” The exhibition will be open until October 25.
