LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Guy Hepner Los Angeles and Los Angeles based artist Neal Spector announce October 23, 2008 as the formal opening of Labels. Los Angeles based, Detroit native Neal Spector is no stranger to the limelight. Before commencing work as an artist, Spector was one of the founding creatives behind one of Hollywood’s biggest creative firms. Years of exposure to both television and conspicuous consumption inspired him to create the “Labels” body of work.
Taking the television show “What’s My Line?” as his cue, Spector’s work is a curious mix of influences. References to Richard Prince, Jenny Holzer and Barbara Kruger all exist, creating powerful portraits that convey a telling critique on the society we live in. Spector works in both color and black and white, using digitally manipulated original source imagery and vintage photography.

An Exhbition of 8 Black and White and 9 Color Portraits
Digitally Manipulated Vintage Photographs
Published in Edition Of 3
