David Spriggs at Messums

Material Light: David Spriggs
at Messums Wiltshire
9th Dec – 4th Feb 2018

Material Light will feature ‘Vision II’, a 5m x 5m x 2m light installation by David Spriggs as a sole illumination set in the 13th century monastic barn of Messums Wiltshire. Immediately inspirational yet purposely philosophical and contextual to age old celebrations around the turning point towards a lengthening day, ‘Vision II’ celebrates the experience of light as well as evoking one of our most elemental of relationships.

Born in Manchester, England, Spriggs now lives and works in Vancouver and is well-known for his large-scale installations through which he probes the symbolic, cultural and historical significance of light. Spriggs received his Bachelor or Fine Art from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 1999 and his MFA in sculpture from Concordia University in 2007. His work has been shown nationally and internationally.
