Beyond Reason | Paintings and Monotypes by Mark Spencer
By Clayton Campbell
Designed by Charla Reid
Edited by Richard V. West and Debra J. Byrne
This catalogue was published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with its exhibition Beyond Reason: Paintings and Monotypes by Mark Spencer (May 3–June 21, 2002), a part of the Frye’s Viewpoints series, which is devoted to the work of contemporary artists who are redefining the concepts of representation and content in modern painting.
At once formal yet psychological in their premise, Spencer’s images invoke sacred spaces where rituals of life and renewal are momentarily captured. While Spencer’s work is primarily figurative, the imagery recalls an appreciation of objects as they embody a state of transition.
This publication includes an introduction by Clayton Campbell, a conversation between the artist and Debra J. Byrne, a select artist biography along with an exhibition checklist, and full color illustrations of the exhibition artworks.
