“Archaeology of Space” BY David Spriggs
Montreal-based artist David Spriggs presents a series of his remarkable three-dimensional inventions in an exhibition that he calls “Archaeology of Space.” 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.
