karen elaine spencer: word word word, painting on paper, 33″ x 52″, 2014

One of five 2016 finalists for the Prix en Art Actuel awarded by the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec. Like her celebrated performance actions that consider the social, economic and political undercurrents of our culture, spencer’s unique text-based visual language forces us to slow down and look closely to decipher the underlying meaning of what is right before our eyes.
