A practice unfolding through a field of relations both historical and contemporary, Spear explores heavily in her work the exploration of the production of 17th-century Dutch painting — a period commonly referred to as the ‘age of observation’ — which has been an important influence.

She works with the ambiguities that exist between the world we see (and construct), and the world as seen (and records through the optical system of the eye). She is interested in the way different systems of knowledge might interact to reflect relationships between worlds: the natural and constructed, and the human and non-human.

“My work references light, optics, and ideas about mapping space. Images are often created using lens-based technologies, such as the camera, telescope or microscope, as well as remote sensing technologies and data. I make paintings, photographs, (including pin-hole photographs), digital prints, artist’s books, sound works and three dimensional objects.  These works reference ways of seeing and memory, space and time, art and science, philosophy and history. “
