What it could be, not what it should be…
… a perspective embodied by each original Caleb Speller piece.
Art hid Speller from pressures at school and after graduation his travels to Hawaii, Thailand, and Australia aided in a deeper connection to himself, his beliefs, and the world.
While rebuilding custom bicycles, Speller earned a Visual Arts diploma at Camosun College which introduced many new mediums. His focus became ceramics, watercolour, and photography, yet unorthodox. Gaining confidence, he knocked on doors in the creative community and his work was invited to display at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria during the Warhol exhibit.
Speller’s inspiration continues to grow, whether it’s carving hockey pucks into print blocks, building a studio from found materials, or studying plant life from his garden. His newly assembled table book showcases images of his work and how he is shaped by surroundings, accessible materials and the recesses of his mind’s visual dictionary.
There is no destination, he is active in the present.
