David Spriggs was born in Manchester, United Kingdom, and emigrated to Canada in 1992. Spriggs is known for his unique large-scale installations that layer transparent images to create a three-dimensional form. He paints or draws topographical cross-sections of a subject onto sheets of transparent film. These sheets are then very specifically spaced and hung apart to reveal the appearance of 3D images in a state of suspension.
Spriggs pioneered this technique in 1999 and continues to explore it with his art. His spatial-image sculptures bridge the gap between two-dimensional and three-dimensional and create an awe-inspiring experience. As you move around the installation, you see multiple images reveal their form, only to have them destabilize and reform again from a different position.
