(American, b.1962) explores themes such as objective investigation verses personal perception, and the use of color and light to recreate past experiences. After spending a year studying pottery at Doisha University in Kyoto, Japan, Finch applied to the ceramics program at the Rhode Island School of Design, and later transferred to the Sculpture Department. Finch graduated with an MFA in sculpture in 1989. He now works in a variety of media, such as watercolor, drawing, photography, glass, video, and installation pieces. Some of his best-known works are his light installations, in which he recreates the exact light and colors from a particular time and place using fluorescent rods filtered through various colors. Finch’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, at galleries such as Yvon Lambert
in Paris, France; and the Galleri Nordenhake in Berlin, Germany; among many others. Spencer Finch currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
