John Van Alstine, widely known for his large scale outdoor sculptures made from stone and found object steel, has notably become one of America’s most important sculptors over the past decade.

For more than thirty-five years, the focus of Van Alstine’s sculpture has been the exploration of motion and balance through the natural forces of gravity and inertia, as experienced in his monumental, large scale and smaller works located in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America.   The combination of natural elements with the man-made creates a poetic and choreographed visual balance, often referencing figurative, classical, nautical, celestial and western mythological themes.

Van Alstine, born in 1952 in Upstate New York.  He received his BFA from Kent State University and his MFA from Cornell University in 1976.  Since then he has participated in more than 80 solo and group exhibitions and has won numerous awards, fellowships, and grants from the Pollack-Krasner Foundation, Gottlieb Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, the Yaddo Fellowship, the Louis C. Tiffany Foundation, New Jersey Council of the Arts and most recently the Merit Award in Beijing for his construction of a large-scale public sculpture in the Olympic Park Garden.
