Spencer Sloan is an Atlanta native whose background as a pop-culture blogger led to the creation of his most recent abstract work.
For this show, Sloan has digitally manipulated paparazzi photographs into abstraction using a series of image-corrupting applications.
Creating works that are large in scale and made with digital bursts of color, patterns and noise-induced shapes, Sloan’s experimentation results in distinctive photographs which reflect on the chaos that is pop culture.
In his words, "My work explores the obsession with celebrity culture, the invasion of privacy and the complex issues of image ownership, appropriation and copyright . . . turning the voyeuristic into the inviolable, creating a post-modern commentary on societal values in relation to contemporary pop culture."
