Since 1969 Mark Spencer has been producing drawings and paintings that are compelling, beautiful, and sometimes disturbing. His work implies that reality is not what our culture has led us to believe, and it carries a consistent main narrative of "nature versus human nature." He reveals a persistent conflict between the nature of this gorgeous planet and the ways in which human nature perceives itself as being separate from and superior to it. He believes that "the soul's hand can reach down into our fertile depths to retrieve images that may heal the divide and transform our consciousness."
Spencer's creative vision encompasses high realism and broad abstractions. Never disregarding either, he seeks to discover images that unite the personal with the universal. His works can be found in public and private collections around the world.
