John Van Alstine is on the blog today!!!

John and his wife are fortunate to have wonderful property to shelter in place while each being a productive artist.  They consider the situation as almost an “artist’s retreat” – where an artist might go to isolate themselves from the rest of the world and work without interruption (and not distracted- if you keep the News and media off …)!
John embarked on a new bronze  “self-distancing” / Covid series, trying to incorporate some of the themes he has worked on for many years (like the “myth of Sisyphus”). His goal was to bring meaning and an artist voice to these very unusual times. He ponders many artists in the past that were able to use dangerous and uncertain times to spur on their creativity (Shakespeare during the black plague, artists during the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic like Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, and many others who were faced with Nazism or the great depression, or even the McCarthy era in the 1950’s).
John is highly collected and his work is admired world wide. Following are several insightful videos for those who care to learn more. The first is a recording of the installation of PORTAL in the front of Tilting.

 

Plus more videos to learn about the art and artist!
