Ken Spencer

Ken Spencer was born in Liverpool and has a fine art background. After living and working in various locations on Merseyside and in Yorkshire, he moved to Northumberland in 1974.

Ken works rapidly in transparent layers and washes. These are then built up into vigorous textures with quite thickly applied opaque pigment. In this way he captures the quality of the light and the raw physical beauty of the landscape. Some of Ken’s more recent paintings have become quite abstract in their insistence on capturing the transient effect of light on the landscape.

In the last ten years, Ken Spencer has exhibited widely in both mixed exhibitions and in one man shows. His landscapes now hang in Europe and America as well as in England. He exhibits both locally and nationally at various galleries and is planning further one man shows in the near future.
