Doug Wheeler - SA MI 75 DZ NY 12, 1975/2012
"Built within the gallery’s 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.
Wheeler said, “I wanted to effect a dematerialization so that I could deal with the dynamics of the particular space. It was a real space—not illusory—it was a cloud of light in constant flux. That molecular mist is the most important thing I do. It comes out of my way of seeing from living in Arizona—and the constant awareness of the landscape and the clouds.””[David Zwirner]

Tablecloth with grid-paper pattern designed to be drawn on:
Don’t go thinking this tablecloth is just for kids- it would be just as fun at a dinner party or outdoor cookout. After you scribble and scrawl your masterpiece or menu and your guests/family have had their fill of fabric markers, throw the tablecloth into the washer and you’ll soon have a blank canvas for your next event.
