Celeste Dupuy-Spencer employs energetic, gestural brushwork and a rich visual language to create portraits and quotidian scenes that mine the American experience. Her dense compositions capture the grotesque imperfections of her subjects with the underlying affection of an intimate. Evoking equal parts existential dread and love, Dupuy-Spencer offers a sprawling examination of society; its faults, contradictions, triumphs, and all.

The artist received a BFA from Bard College, Annandale-on- Hudson, New York in 2007. 


Celeste Dupuy-Spencer participates in the exhibition Equal AffectionsJuly 23 - August 28, 2021. For more information about the artist, please visit Nino Mier Gallery.
