As Spencer Sweeney notes, his creative process "could be seen as half suffering and half playful euphoria. Each side is of equal interest, because one cannot exist without the other." Pulling Tubes Trio is a triptych of images that are both humorous and evocative, featuring a bright red caricatured figure in sunglasses, a field of gestural splatter paint, and a prized llama.

Artist, musician, DJ, and club owner Spencer Sweeney emerged on the New York art scene in the late 1990s. Widely known for his associations with the inner circle of the American Fine Arts gallery in SoHo, he is also noted for his role as a musician: he was the drummer for the influential art-rock band Actress, alongside Lizzi Bougatsos of Gang Gang Dance. Sweeney's multifaceted persona is reflected in his art, with a boundless disregard for consistency. His practice exists in constant motion, reinforcing contradiction, and in opposition to traditional norms defined by the museum or gallery space. Whether creating all-encompassing installations, colorful collages, cartoonish drawings, or charismatic self-portraits, Sweeney eschews a single, identifiable style in lieu of work that reflects the multiplicity of his influences and the shifting nature of his practice.
