Description

"My recent work, digitally manipulating paparazzi photographs into abstraction using a series of image-corrupting applications, is rooted in my years spent as a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad pop-culture blogger. The work is a way of dealing with the lingering celebrity news obsession." - Spencer Sloan

About Spencer Sloan

View Profile »

Spencer Sloan, a native Atlantan, is a mixed-media artist and pop culture blogger who holds a BFA in Painting from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of GA in Athens. His work explores the obsession with celebrity culture, the invasion of privacy and the complex issues of ownership of image, appropriation and copyright. In his process, Sloan digitally manipulates hi-res paparazzi photographs into pure abstraction with a series of image-corrupting applications—using a ubiquitous modern device (iPhone), turning the voyeuristic into the inviolable, creating a post-modern commentary on societal values in relation to contemporary pop culture. His unique compositions give a new perception of celebrity culture.
