Nan Hoover

Nan Hoover's video works are both formalist and highly sensual. Her meticulous renderings of light, color and movement suggest external and interior landscapes. Fluidly manipulating light and shadow into sculptural form, Hoover created an evocative tension between abstraction and reality. Precisely composed, unfolding in real time, these minimalist reveries invoke the sublime. A pioneering video artist who also worked in performance and photography, Hoover was born in 1931 and died in 2008.   full biography
