    About The Work

    The new limited edition print by internationally renowned contemporary artist Celeste Dupuy-Spencer, entitled When you’ve eaten everything below you, you’ll devour yourself/except in dreams you’re never really free (2021), was created exclusively for Artspace, and proceeds from the sale of this edition of 50 will be donated to New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.

    Hailed by curators and critics as a leading artist of her generation, Celeste Dupuy-Spencer moves between styles, gestures and a history of painting to interrogate the American experience as seen in her religious scenes, portraits and landscapes. Known for energetic brushwork and incorporating a montage of visual language, Celeste’s paintings grapple with existential questions through figures and scenes that are at once confrontational and tender. Community and more broadly, society —in all its contradictions, repression, as well as hope and love—is often the protagonist Celeste’s body of work that aims to capture the multiplicitous, ever-evolving nature of America.
