Spencer Finch: Forever is composed of Nows
Shanghai, 15 September – 28 October 2023
Opening: 4-6pm, 15 September 2023
Lisson Gallery is delighted to present the first solo exhibition in China by the New York-based artist, Spencer Finch. The exhibition features new and recent work including an LED light installation, a series of pastel on paper works, watercolour drawings, as well as Pantone swatches with pencil on paper. Each work is a conceptually condensed chronicle of a journey or experience, often an interaction between the artist and nature: from the study of the opacity and translucency of a cloud, to the tracing of a bee’s flight pattern as it pollinates flowers in a garden.
The title of the presentation, 'Forever is composed of Nows', is borrowed from an Emily Dickinson book of poems. The title reflects how – while each individual work in the exhibition is an observation of a defined moment or event – together, these snapshots create a panoptic whole, each a recording of Finch’s extraordinary experiments, challenging himself to capture ineffable temporal and sensory experiences using a variety of everyday materials and tools.Read more
