Layering acrylic on transparent sheets, the ghostly work of David Spriggs towers over viewers. The artist places painted subjects inside these creations, from from varying figures to more celestial bodies. A view from behind works such as “In Utero II” shows how the illusionary quality of the installations carries to different perspectives.
David Spriggs uses a combinations of acrylic paint and transparent plastic sheets to create sculptural installations with images floating within them. Spriggs divides his abstract designs into layers and paints them one by one until they accumulate into an illusory final product. His work focuses on radiating patterns that evoke various cosmic phenomena. With his strategic use of lighting, the nebulas come to life and appear to levitate before the viewer.
