E-mail: galleryspencer@yahoo.com Born 1970. Living in Los Angeles, Scott Andrew Spencer loves to listen to music and paint. He takes inspiration from his immediate surroundings, real or imagined, and paints into the wee hours of the night. "That's when the energy comes." Scott began painting full time after a brush with cancer in 1999. He is represented by renowned gallerist and art dealer Biljana Grcic-Beran through Galeria Jan in La Jolla, California, and was admitted into the Pasadena Society of Artists in 2004. Artist Statements: Life is a game. Play along. These are definitely wacky times. We live in an age of orange newscasters and Buger King memorabilia. I stepped off the deep end a long time ago and have been dogpaddling ever since. Every day I thank my lucky stars and the Powers That Be that there are art collectors in this world. "Thank you," to everyone who owns and all future owners of these paintings. You are wonderful people, allowing me to continue painting and giving me great satisfaction. If you're ever in Los Angeles, please look me up. I'll buy you some lunch. I'd like to get to know you. I give myself over to That Which Governs. I know Someone or Something is watching after me, keeping vigil. Every canvas has an agenda--a life of its own separate from its maker, separate from thought or logic or reason--and to plot its course is only to interfere. To plan is to destroy. Let it paint. Trust the mess. All marks are good. Oh, but the mutiny of scrutiny . . . if we could only leave it alone. The self-taught artist has a great chance to be unique. Without knowledge of "rules" to hinder the hand or an instructor's style to imitate, what results is pure, entirely his own. Contrary to popular belief, abstract art is "meaningful" on a parallel with representational art. Each of us sees differently, and individual responses to an abstract work of art are varied. An abstract work's "meaning" is oftentimes stronger and more personal for the viewer than it is in purely representational art where the subject matter is obvious and can only evoke a limited range of emotions. Albert Einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." Welcome words to a daydreamer like me. "There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion." Francis Bacon Being gay is a gift, a variation on a theme. Love is too powerful to be shaped or confined. At the moment, I'm loving the paintings of Cecily Brown, Raimonds Staprans and Paul Balmer. My all-time favorites are Max Beckmann, Milton Avery, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Egon Schiele, Richard Diebenkorn and Lucien Freud.
