Spencer Finch takes a deconstructionist approach to the representation of time and space. Focused especially on light and water, he attempts to recreate these in a variety of mediums, including watercolor, photography, glass, electronics, video, and fluorescent lights. He is perhaps best known for his light installations, which recreate exactly the light that existed in a given time and place, an act of preservation that acknowledges its source’s impermanence. The theme of memory and its elusiveness runs throughout his oeuvre, as does the process of conceptualizing space.
The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.; the High Museum of Art in Atlanta; the Museum of Contemporary art in Chicago; and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City all include Finch’s work in their permanent collections. He is represented by James Cohan Gallery in New York.
