Almine Rech exhibited this Vaughn Spann work in Frieze Art Fair's 2020 online viewing rooms.

Since graduating with an MFA from the Yale School of Art in 2018, Spann has already been included in more than three dozen group shows across the U.S., and there is a lot of heat around his work after recent strong secondary market auction results.

Avoiding the temptation to settle on one signature style, Spann has remained committed to making surreal figurative scenes and abstractions, as well as works that float between the two.

'I don't want to choose one conversation,' the artist has explained. 'I want to be rebellious and think through lots of ideas. I learn through the chaos.'
