Description

Spencer Sweeney assumes the roles of artist, club owner, and musician to build a practice that intentionally falls between the cracks of any specific genre. His explosively colorful collaged paintings and cartoonish drawings constitute one part of a larger body of work based on his persona. This places him within a tradition of artists such as Martin Kippenberger who, in cultivating outrageous personalities and shifting rapidly between artistic styles, sought an expanded space to maneuver not otherwise afforded by the gallery system.
