Rustic. Historic. Nostalgic.
I'm JC Spock and I create art that speaks to a bygone era and simpler times.
My art incorporates many layers of different mediums – acrylic paints, inks, pencils, pastels and vintage ephemera (old letters, tickets, receipts, postcards, ledgers, etc.) anchored by my photography as the focal point of each piece. It is a 20-30 step process and each piece contains many layers. This lends to a contemporary piece of art with a vintage aesthetic.
As an old soul, I'm drawn to old buildings, old documents and old history. I love to scour antique shops for vintage/antique ephemera to incorporate into my backgrounds and I love to photograph the West as I see it and interpret the story through the paint, paper and photography incorporated in each piece. I'm perfectly situated between the mountains and prairies of Colorado and love to explore the areas around me that speak to the bygone era I long to revisit.
