Spencer Sloan

Artist Statement Submitted 2015

My work explores the obsession with celebrity culture, the invasion of privacy and the complex issues of ownership of image, appropriation and copyright. I do this by digitally manipulating 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.
