David Spriggs

Archaeology of Space

SAAG Southern Alberta Art Gallery

Rodman Hall Arts Centre

Using layered groups of transparent drawings suspended in museum-style cases, Spriggs creates what he calls Spatial Image Sculpture. These optical illusions of deep space, reminiscent of holograms, read as parallel spatial theatre. This deconstruction of form highlights the mechanics of vision at a time when cinema and digital imaging have come to offer alternative visual landscapes.
