Alyce Simon: Atomic Art


Alyce Rothlein Simon (1925-2011) made artworks with the use of a particle accelerator, a machine historically referred to as "an atom smasher," that exalt the power of nature. This intimate exhibition of her world includes pieces from her Spatial Paintings series, which encapsulates the celestial through illuminated sheets of acrylic that have been irradiated and stained, and her diverse Tree of Life series of clear, acrylic objects that contain embedded tree-shaped fractures.
