Three-dimensional Illusions

David Spriggs is known for his unusual large-scale installations, which meld a sense of intensity with a sense of delicacy. Spriggs’s technique presents remarkable three-dimensional inventions that is seemingly ephemeral in its translucence, but is created from multiple layered images that are suspended vertically, allowing the viewer to move about them. Using layered groups of transparent drawings suspended in museum-style cases. Spriggs creates convincing optical illusions of deep, almost-actual space. This deconstruction of form highlights the mechanics of vision at a time when cinema and digital imaging have come to offer alternative visual landscapes. Spriggs’s objects possess a dynamic sense of otherness and isolation that reads as parallel spatial theatre, a literal world apart.
