Alyson Shotz Etchings Shown at Carolina Nitsch Gallery

"Three Views of an Object" from Alyson Shotz at Carolina Nitsch Project Room

Here’s a photograph from the Fundamental Forces exhibition at Carolina Nitsch Project Room that we thought we’d share with you. The show just finished it’s run at the end of April, and it included three prints from Shotz which were produced here at Graphicstudio.

The Shotz works included in the Fundamental Forces show are entitled Three Views of an Object  (#1, #2, and #3). The works are highly detailed photoetchings on paper. You can get a better sense of the detail involved in the Shotz etchings in the photo below.

Per the Carolina Nitch Fundamental Forces press release:

Three Views of an Object are 3 large scale etchings depicting an undulating form (from the series of drawings titled “Folded Spaces”) from three different perspectives. These prints are technically fascinating because they began as vector based computer drawings, but were then translated to the centuries old medium of etching, thus creating a kind of art historical analog/digital bridge.
