Installation view of the exhibition Doug Wheeler at David Zwirner in New York, dated 2012.

Doug Wheeler

David Zwirner is pleased to present an ambitious new work by American artist Doug Wheeler (b. 1939), whose large-scale installations have rarely been seen in the United States. Built within the gallery's 519 West 19th Street space, Wheeler's SA MI 75 DZ NY 12 (2012) explores the materiality of light while emphasizing the viewer's physical experience of infinite space. The exhibition marks the first presentation of an "infinity environment" by the artist in New York.

As a pioneer of the so-called "Light and Space" movement that flourished in Southern California in the 1960s and 1970s, Wheeler's prolific and groundbreaking body of work encompasses drawing, painting, and installations that are characterized by a singular experimentation with the perception and experience of space, volume, and light. Raised in the high desert of Arizona, Wheeler began his career as a painter in the early 1960s while studying at the Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts) in Los Angeles.
