Spencer Hansen’s artworks examine the
weight of time, both through the process of
assembly and the resulting creation. Technical
methods involving countless hours facilitate
transformations of corporeal artifacts. Animal
skulls and bones are integral to his sculptural
works, acknowledged as a symbolically
charged subject matter, but stripped down to
abstraction. Metal chains, wet formed leather
and wood alter the organic skeletal contour,
allowing us to momentarily face time as tiers
of abstract shapes, shadows and textures.
Hansen’s work and interests range from
photography and fashion to sculpture. The
varied technical approaches that come with
such a wide array of practices have allowed
him to create far-reaching visual narratives
and multifaceted artworks. He currently
creates at his Bali based workshop/studio
with a team of skilled workers where he is also
the creative director and designer for his
design companies, Heathen Clothing and
Blamo Toys.
