Good Deeds AKA Suggested Reading
A book of the work of Keith Allyn Spencer

Keith Allyn Spencer’s painting practice is a lo-fi interrogation of modernist values of form and color, but through his unconventional concern for the discarded and overlooked, and his interest in breaking out of the gallery space (his CV lists solo shows at the US Post Office, Domino’s Pizza, and Holiday Inn Express) the work exceeds these formal explorations. These “incursions” into “public” space, or non “art” space, form a large part of his practice. He also writes stories as titles for paintings, includes his role as a father to two young boys, and writes long list poems like “Good Deeds” — acts a person can perform out of kindness. This expanded work is always sincere, insightful, humorous, and intelligent. There are big questions in his work, such as the ethics of being an artist, that are wrestled in text, in titles, in his unconventional exhibition venues. He is thus a natural choice for Pink Jacket’s first solo artist book.
