Though his career began as a painter, Doug Wheeler quickly became fascinated with light, incorporating it into his wall-mounted artworks until he constructed an absolute light environment inside his Venice Beach studio in 1957. Since then, the American artist has realized ethereal luminous environments at the Guggenheim, Hirshhorn, and Stedelijk Museums, which fellow artist Daniel Buren likened to “experiencing a spatial event, entering into light.” Wheeler’s latest exhibition, which takes over David Zwirner’s 19th Street gallery, continues his lifelong study of light’s atmospheric and perceptual effects.
