As if the sea should part and show a further sea
Feb 2009 -
American artist Spencer Finch explores the peculiarities of human perception. He brings a poetic sensibility and a rigorous scientific approach to a wide range of media, including painting, drawing, photography and installation.
Finch has produced a new site-specific work for the Queensland Art Gallery's Gibson entry — transforming the glass corridor into a giant light filter that shifts Brisbane's sunlight to match that of another location. A group of works on paper and light installations are also on display in GOMA. Finch has exhibited extensively in the United States and United Kingdom and this is his first Australian exhibition.
