paint on car cover installed on car parked in public (2019). These are usually installed while I am doing errands, but they can be installed other ways and elsewhere, too: in a gallery, on an armature, or even folded in a cardboard box shelved in the garage.

these are based off of what I call my “magnet props”. Most of my larger plastic paintings are hung with a series of rare earth magnets. The magnets are covered with various household, junk drawer items to conceal the hanging hardware. Sometimes the magnet props no longer become props to accompany the artworks.

Tia Pilar is a series of paintings/drawings that were used for a kickstarter campaign. Tia Pilar is my wife’s aunt who was diagnosed with skin cancer and couldn’t afford treatment. These works which composed of ink and paint sandwiched between transparency sheets were given to generous donors of any amount..some $100, some $5.

My thumb is double jointed, and in this image, complicates an understanding of the painting’s scale. I actually wish I had made it to be the size of my thumb, rather than the size of my lung.

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.
