Spencer’s work deals with concepts revolving around the human condition, emotional space, and the balance between what is absolute and what is wished for. She collages wood, paint, paper and a variety of other materials to create layered and visceral narratives. Her work has been described as rich, dramatic, wooden and mixed media narratives that construct a fantastical reverie.
