The alabaster stone I used for this piece is rather striking -- it has alternating ribbons of multiple shades of red, creating beautiful eye-catching patterns throughout the piece.

Maskulinity

Exhibition: April 15  – May 3, 2021  
Reception: Virtual  

One of 36 artists selected  from 135 entries for MFA's Maskulinity 2021 online exhibition by show juror Anthony Shostak. "Some of the artists strip away masks to reveal roles that may themselves be merely deeper layers that mask true identity. Others present images of fully masked men whose true selves are in plain sight or which are actually defined by the mask itself. The artists play to their strengths, pushing their chosen medium to create visions of masculinity and identity which we help complete through the participatory act of viewing."

This show features a work entitled "Waiting For The Results 2020." Which could be interpreted as Covid test results, election results, or other news of that year.

The stone is rather unusual, in that it has yellow and red streaks interwoven throughout and also contains some colored crystals.

SCULPTING WITH LIGHT A solo show featuring unique 3D holograms

Exhibition: September 26th – October 19, 2019   
Artist Meet & Greet: October 6th 3-5 pm 

As a result of a HoloCenter (NYC) award, I was fortunate to be able to utilize the facilities at the Ohio State University Physics Laboratory to make holographic recordings of one of my popular stone artworks, “Chief”. Under the guidance of Professor Kagan, I used various holographic processes to create holograms with different visual effects – some are rainbow colored, some are monochromatic. The resulting 3D images are exact copies of the carved rock figure except that they are sculpted with light! The exhibit also includes some holographic "selfies" and some vintage holograms.

Contrasts in Composition

Exhibition: July 5 – July 23, 2019   
Reception: Saturday, July 6, 2019 5-8pm 

 

Art at Leeds, a unique gallery located 2 hours north of New York City, is currently exhibiting a collection of new and vintage holograms produced by artist Alan Rhody as part of its Contrast in Composition show. Rhody primarily works as a stone sculptor, handcrafting marble, alabaster, and soapstone artworks. In addition to this ancient craft, he also utilizes modern technologies to create another type of 3D imagery. “Thirty five years ago, I was fortunate to be able to live and work in the San Francisco Bay area when display holography was blossoming. My holo-career encompassed sales, exhibition, marketing, education, and journalism. Whenever the opportunity arose, I took classes or rented lab time to make my own holograms." "After a long hiatus, I recently resumed hologram production at Ohio State University Physics Dept as part of a HoloCenter artist residency program. My current installation integrates the same imagery sculpted in both stone and light (the former as a sculpture, the latter as wall-mounted reflection holograms and freestanding transmission holograms). And some self-portraits of me sculpting, captured by Dr Harris Kagan.” In addition to his own art, Rhody is showing holograms from his personal collection, featuring noteworthy works from Bob Hess, Lon Moore, Greg Cherry, Mike Madora and Third Dimension, Ltd.
