Kellen Spencer is an Alberta-based visual artist, printmaker, and photographer 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 most recently been included in group exhibitions at The New Gallery, and cSPACE King Edward, and will be included in the upcoming Hand Pic’d exhibition at VIVIANEART in Calgary, Alberta.

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, and perhaps return to studies in urban planning, and architecture in the forseeable future.
