Britt Spencer
Based in Savannah, GA, Britt Spencer received a BFA in Illustration & an MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art & Design, where he is currently an Illustration Professor. Spencer has provided illustrations for more than 100 publications internationally, illustrated three children's books published by Philomel Books & illustrated a 200-page graphic novel published by One Peace Books. His work has earned recognition from the Society of Illustrators New York, the Society of Illustrators West, Communication Arts, New American Paintings & Art Prize's Juried Short List. "Impotent Narratives" is an ongoing series of paintings by Spencer that explore passive storytelling. Spencer maintains the look of narrative without being concerned with a linear path towards communication. The work is purposefully evasive & thereby counter-illustrative. In the end, they have the structure of story but no ability to get the audience anywhere meaningful. The starting content of each painting in this series is influenced largely by relationship issues between adults & children. Namely the collision of reason & wonder, expectation & responsibility, fatalism & free will. Along the way, Spencer abandons this now flattened inspiration & drifts into formalistic concerns, concentrating on line, shape, color, etc.
