This room needs flowers

In This room needs flowers., Spencer Finch presents five intimate works that speak poetically to the patience and persistence of the avid gardener. Employing watercolor, woodblock and photography, Finch creates work that feels constructed of color, time, light and air - recording and mimicking natural phenomena of falling leaves and cherry blossoms, chronicling blooms and observing the subtleties of a day in the life of a daisy. This room needs flowers. takes its name from a line in the poem Afterward by Robert Dash's close friend and collaborator James Schuyler.
