In Spencer Finch's exhibition at Galerie Nordenhake Stockholm the artist presents a group of recorded observations from the natural world. Often combining Conceptual and Impressionist practices Finch reflects on the tautologous nature of seeing, the limits of visual perception and the fallibility of recollection. Sometimes his works originate from his own individual perceptions, of light, color, darkness for example, while his methodology is often scientific in its precision. However, all his work is strongly anchored in often-poetic references to literature, philosophy, mythologies and even historic observations from the scientific cannon. His exhibition at the gallery partly comprises a group of works dealing with atmospheric phenomena and relating to the landscape. A highly industrialized and urban waterway is recalled via Impressionist images of water lilies, sunsets and seascapes in a color study of the Gowanus canal (which passes the artist's studio in Brooklyn) using the amalgamated hues from picture postcards of works by Monet. The breeze as recorded passing through the bedroom window at Emily Dickinson's home in Amherst, MA, is evoked in exactness with the use of a table fan. In an eclectic variety of media and themes Finch also takes on cloud formations, moon shadows and stone wall formations.
