BEYOND SEA 2021, MIXED MEDIA
PUBLIC RECORD - CPAC "STYLEFRAMES"
Mike Spicer’s artwork presents an exploratory vision of abstract work by the artist based in Toronto, Ontario Canada. In the mixed-media works of Spicer, drawing, painting, newsprint and photography are layered together tactfully. The surprising compositions and a fragile balance between the unhinged scribbles, dramatic paint splatters, pops of color and the opposites of soft washes of white paired with deep black bring tension and drama on the canvas.
