Spencer Finch: Following Nature
5 February 2013
Brooklyn-based artist Spencer Finch, creates mixed-media installations, photographs, and drawings that explore the limits of perception. Bringing together a scientific approach and a nuanced sense of poetics, Finch’s works call attention to various phenomena of the natural world through his investigations of light and color. Finch will create Following Nature, a new installation for the IMA’s Efroymson Family Entrance Pavilion that looks to the representation of water. Seeking to capture water’s movement and reflectivity, the installation will be composed of an array of glass panels that will hang from the ceiling and multihued transparent vinyl that will cover the pavilion’s windows.
