A versatile and improvisational artist, Brandon Spicer-Crawley (b. 1980) works with a wide range of material, including wood collage, ceramic, calligraphy ink, paper sculpture, and acrylic paint pen. His style is both free-form and carefully crafted, with recurring motifs of letters, police officers, and squiggly lines. Creating dynamic compositions of abstract shape and figurative forms, Spicer-Crawley develops an electric series of marks emanating outward, creating vibrating, dynamic spaces.
Spicer-Crawley has worked in the studio at CCW since its start in 2011. He lives with his family in Jeffersonville, PA.
