Kellen Spencer is an Alberta-based visual artist, and printmaker investigating the connection between urban residential redevelopment, memory, and the notion of home. By documenting changes in the residential vernacular from post-war bungalows to modern infills, Spencer sees the home as a place to unearth past memories, while anticipating the eventual cycles of demolition, construction, life, and death. His work has recently been included in group exhibitions at The New Gallery, and VIVIANEART, and will be included in the upcoming Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed at the Orillia Museum of Art & History.

Spencer recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Print Media at the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD), and was the recipient of the Board of Governor’s Graduating Student Award. He intends to pursue an MFA in printmaking, open a local printshop in his hometown or perhaps return to studies in urban planning or architecture.
