DeWain Valentine


DeWain Valentine is an American artist who was part of the Light and Space movement, alongside Larry Bell and Robert Irwin. The artist is known for his translucent works which change appearance according to light. Drawing inspiration from the sky and the sea, Valentine’s works are produced through the use of plastic, glass and resin. Through his career he put these materials to use to realise his sleek, minimalist forms with hues that shift in the light. The inspiration for many of his works comes from the sky and sea, capturing what Valentine refers to as “transparent coloured space”. With a career spanning over fifty years, Valentine has shown in museums and galleries around the world, and his works are included in the permanent collections of institutions such as the San Diego Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum and MoMA, New York.
