Spencer Harvie’s art is concerned with associative thinking and the intriguing
interconnectedness of arbitrary ideas. In FilmProposal, for example, Harvie’s
timeline stretches the course of the 20th century outlining events, objects, and
scenarios with varying accuracy. In this work the artist gives a nod to
conceptual art, because timelines, diagrams, and indexes form a strong part of
that history. Film Proposal connects a part of artist Andy Warhol’s expanded
history, as well as Harvie’s own experiences, resulting in a rich mix of facts and
Harvie explains, in a tangential way: ‘Did you know Warhol once baked muffins
with Debbie Harry? Unfortunately Warhol’s house in Pittsburgh burnt down that
same day, otherwise known as the Oven Incident, 1974. Warhol’s house was
later rebuilt, and purchased by entrepreneur and artist Jeff Koons in the early
‘90s, no joke!’.
Harvie has exhibited in recent group exhibitions at The Hold and
Woolloongabba Art Gallery, Brisbane.
