Spencer is a multidisciplinary Artist with an established practice in Sculpture, Installation, Photography, Moving Image, Sound, and Performance. 

As a global citizen who has resided outside of his country of origin for the last 25 years, Spencer's practice explores the complexities of place, movement, and belonging. As someone that exists in a temporary and transient state, what does it mean to be in outer space within a place?

Spencer's practice and the landscapes of his host nation coexist in a collaborative and symbiotic relationship. He immerses himself within ethereal and uninhabited spaces to spark his creative thought process. Spencer actively seeks out and absorbs the environment, materials, and cultural experiences of his host nation and mixes this up with the data and memory stored on the magnetic tapes of his mainframe brain. Spencer's process culminates with his body, costume, and objects being juxtaposed against sublime and dystopian landscapes to produce outcomes of fantasy, mythology, futurism, and carnival.

Spencer's work has been exhibited extensively at Group exhibitions and Festivals within the United Arab Emirates including at Sharjah Art Foundation, Tashkeel - Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival, Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and Sikka Art Fair -Dubai.

Spencer has received numerous awards for his work and was an Artist in Residence at the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation in 2022 and a collaborative member of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Visiting Artist Programme 2022-23.

Spencer is presently studying for a  MA in Fine Art at Falmouth University in the United Kingdom and is expected to graduate in December 2023.

“If you feel safe in the area you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.”

David Bowie
