Artist Statement ::
Human emotions, life scenarios, expectations, disappointments, and paths taken are aspects being explored through the human experience. The objective is for the spectator to be able to create a personal link with a painting and see themselves as potential characters within the environment presented. Viewers are open to their own individual interpretations. Perhaps they could see themselves or someone else in the same place. The sense of space and place is a focus. However, the meaning and intent is open to individual perception.
"Gaye Spencer provides a powerful series of almost monochromatic paintings (and sculpture) dealing with the human figure, dramatic, poignant and ever so subtly generating a current of surreal danger in some of the work. A style which has become familiar to the Australian art world with painters such as Delasield, Cook and Tim Storrier…as opposed to some of the European artists using similar imagery, Gaye’s content is purely sensual, not doom-laden and morbid like the work of Salvador Dali for instance. Two facts are outstanding: the display of excellent brush technique, in some instances almost to the level of airbrush application; the other is Spencer’s ability to imbue great sensuality into her work, coupled with excellent figure drawing skills. It is obvious that her work is of more then passing interest, as some of it is disappearing overseas rather rapidly…” JEORG ANDERSCH – The Mercury.
