Biography   Doug (Douglas) Wheeler

Following is an exhibition review by Tyler Green in Modern Art Notes, October 22, 2008

James Turrell and Robert Irwin are rightly famous. Doug Wheeler, the third great pioneer of '60s-'70s Light-and-Space art is not. That's too bad.

If Turrell was the set-designer of light-driven installations, then Wheeler was the guy who understood that 'the set' wasn't limited to the stage or one wall, that it could take over an entire environment. (This is a concept that Turrell has taken to extremes in the Arizona desert.) If Irwin was a master of subtle art that builds to a low, intense burn, then Wheeler was the guy who realized that if you controlled an entire space, that you could ratchet up the intensity level right away.
