I am bound to no one style and, just like the first random scratch of charcoal on a canvas, I’m never prepared and I enjoy letting instinct take over,” he says.  “There’s nothing I’m bound to other than experimenting, so I can keep pushing and trying new things.

About David Spencer

I am bound to no one style and, just like the first random scratch of charcoal on a canvas, I’m never prepared and I enjoy letting instinct take over,” he says.  “There’s nothing I’m bound to other than experimenting, so I can keep pushing and trying new things.

An appreciation for design in all its forms means Spencer delves into varying materials and styles. Hailing from Fremantle, the humble family man is a true reflection of his craft. Dynamic, energetic and lively, he draws from the past while being in the now, overlaying an urban, industrial sensibility and an admiration for nature’s beauty.

I paint something different every day because I don’t want to get ‘trapped’ into some recognised style or repeated image,” he says. “I need to push and dissect my art until one day I draw but one line and think it’s beautiful.

Each of Spencer’s one-off, contemporary pieces invites opinion. “I want viewers to create their own connection and illicit their own understanding as I honestly prefer the story of others to my own,” Spencer says. “A painting with a voice that speaks to its viewer in a personal way creates a sense of ownership, and inevitably pride when they hang one of my pieces in their personal space.

Spencer believes art is a space for exploration and risk taking. “Art is one of the few spaces left in this world that is without boundaries or boxes to concede to,” he says. “Art is about enjoyment, connection, and challenging and interpreting meaning – and most of all, art should be accessible to everyone.
