NATASHA M. SPENCER
Grounded in a commitment to materiality and physical form and in attempt to penetrate the continuous stream of personal thoughts as we race from one destination to another, I have moved the process of art making out of the studio and into the public domain. Dependant on the armature of nature, these works are meant to provide a temporary moment of lyrical expression as we physically pass by them moving through time and space.
