As surely as a raised fist represents revolution,
Spy’s paintings are vivid images of basic functions
and raw emotion, portrayed under the idea of evolution. She
paints desires, insecurities, fears, and daydreams, through
the eyes of a monkey in the reflection of man in order to
connect all living things. A single subject strikes a pose
on a field of color intense with pigment and symbolism.
Consistent in message but not in form, her painting work
varies dramatically from street murals to formal canvases,
furthering the reach of her work from commissioned living
rooms to back-alley disclosures. The accessibility of Spy's
paintings unify accidental and critical eyes, and the
simplicity of her images are inspired by the power invoked
by a single raised fist.
