A Nashville resident whose work has been exhibited and collected internationally, Jack Spencer alters the surfaces of his photographs with techniques suggestive of painting—rich tones and colors, softly-focused or veiled forms, slight imperfections and painterly textures. Jack Spencer: Beyond the Surface is composed of approximately 70 photographs that exemplify the relationship between these compelling surfaces and Spencer’s interest in myth, mystery and the ephemeral nature of existence. This exhibition is organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and curated by Frist Center Chief Curator Mark Scala. A catalogue published by Vanderbilt University Press will accompany the exhibition.
