For nearly forty years, John Van Alstine has created abstract sculptures forged from steel and stone. In John Van Alstine:
Sculpture 1971–2018, three notable essayists explore the sculptor’s abstract landscapes that reveal the complex synergy between natural forces and man-made elements. The artist weaves into his works elements of mythology, celestial navigation, implements, human figures, movement, urban forms, and found objects, while using motion, balance, and inertia to incor-porate the eternal forces of gravity, tension, and erosion.

Van Alstine’s works have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions and are found in the permanent
collections of the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian’s National
Museum of American Art, and the Phillips Collection, to name but a few. His works are also found in numerous public and private collections. The Artist Book Foundation is gratified to announce the publication of this lavishly illustrated monograph on an esteemed and prolific contemporary artist.

Howard N. Fox is a former senior curatorial fellow of contemporary art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and former curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC. Tom Moran is chief curator and artistic director at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. A
sculptor in his own right, he has lectured on public art around the country. He has taught at Rutgers University as well as at
the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Tim Kane is a journalist, independent curator, and art critic who has authored numerous articles and art reviews on contemporary artists.
