The work of David Spriggs lies in a space between the 2 and 3 dimensions. His installations use multiple painted layered images in space to create unique ephemeral like forms. Spriggs explores the representation and strategies of power, the notions of movement, and the thresholds of form and perception. The subjects depicted in his work specifically relate to the breakdown and recreation of form and volume - as seen through his interest in cyclones, explosions, and forces.
