Sisphean Circle LXIII is the latest creation by award winning sculpture John Van Alstine of Wells, New York located in the southern region of the Adirondack Mountains. Mr. Van Alstine, known for his stone and metal abstract sculptures in USA, Europe & Asia, is a graduate of St. Lawrence University, Kent State (BFA) and Cornell University (MFA). He has taught at the University of Wyoming and the University of Maryland.
The initial series consists of over 30 sculptures and is part of a private collection for the Opalka Foundation Garden in Averill Park, New York.
The Sisyphean Circle Series (2005-2015) preceded Sisyphean Circle LXIII. The initial series consists of over 30 sculptures and is part of a private collection for the Opalka Foundation Garden in Averill Park, New York. The sculptures observe the similarities between Greek mythology and the plight of the artist. This newest addition to Mr. Van Alstines passion is more light hearted than the previous sculptures of the collection. The Sisyphean stone represents an Adirondack guide boat, which in Mr. Van Alstines eyes presents a spirited and local area twist to the sculpture.
This is just one of many of the beautiful and creative pieces we have done for Mr. Van Alstine. He entrusts his artwork to a local galvanizer to be galvanized and powder coated to ensure a quality product that will withstand the weather in Upstate New York for many years to come and to handle his creations with care and consideration.
