Lori Spencer is currently the Coordinator of the Printmaking department at the University of the Arts. She teaches graduate and undergraduate book arts and printmaking classes. Her imagery is often computer generated and then realized in the printmaking process. She gravitates towards mediums and formats that support narrative. Recently she has been exploring the narrative potential of video in her work.
In 2010 she had a residency at Soaring Gardens and received a Faculty Enrichment Grant from the University of the Arts.
Recent shows include Fair Ophelia (a collaboration with Julianna Foster), Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia; Landing Place, Villa Huerto Ruano, Lora, Spain; Pulling From History: Letterpress, the Print Center, Philadelphia; Extra-Dimensional Printmaking Invitational, Nexus, Philadelphia; Production, Not Production: Offset Printed Artist's Books, at the Center For Book Arts, New York.
Her work is in a number of public collections such as Cleveland Institute of Art, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minn., and the Special Collections Library at Yale University.
We live our lives constantly fluctuating between states of being. We are continually responding – and in that response, we exist. The character of that response determines our state of existence. My work evolves from a meditation on some of those responses and states.
