American, born in 1936

DeWain Valentine is a pioneer in the use of industrial plastics and resins for the production of monumental sculptures. His time-consuming, meticulous polishing lasts from a few weeks to several months, but the result is a perfectly transparent surface that reflects and deforms light and space.

Valentine’s interest in reflection and transparency effects, as well as the processes of industrial manufacturing stems from his early professional experiences painting and polishing in the automotive industry. Fascinated by the work of artists of the American West Coast, like Larry Bell, Craig Kauffman and Kenneth Price, in 1965 he settled in Los Angeles, where he joined the Light and Space movement.

The work of DeWain Valentine was first shown by the Pinault Collection at the 2016 “Accrochage” ("Hanging") exhibition at the Punta della Dogana.
