Spencer's slick portrayals of airports, landing strips and planes refelect his continuing interest in responding to everyday subjects. These seemingly banal subjects are transformed into majestic and epic scenes through Spencer's lovingly rendered paintwork. That the most severe urban space can still rovide such an aesthetic expereince is the key to these paintings, a kind of sublime neon landsacpe, entirely synthetic yet undeniably beautiful.
