Statement

A unique mix of commercial and fine art has characterized Speegle's diverse career. The Texas-born New Yorker was part of the 80's East Village art scene, designing for art galleries, producing downtown club events and curating various shows. For the past 25 years, he has art directed and designed for many publications including Vogue, Vanity Fair and Us Weekly. His vast (2500 and counting) paint-by-number collection functions as a visual vocabulary that he uses as a departure point. Combining them with text, he uses the line templates as  structure, painting, collaging, and altering them, making use of the Jasper Johns credo: 


"... just take something and do something to it, and then do something else to it... "
