‘Red’, the most recent work by Canadian/UK artist, David Spriggs, is the latest instalment of the artist’s exploration into colour. In his work, Spriggs examines the particular symbolic, perceptual, social, political, and historical connotations attached to individual colours. The tradition of the monochrome is considered in the artist’s chroma-centric practice. David Spriggs is currently is based in Montreal. He was born in 1978 in Manchester, England, and immigrated to Canada in 1992. He received his Master of Fine Arts from Concordia University, Montreal, and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University in Vancouver. He undertook student residencies at Central St. Martins College of Art in London, England (1999) and the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany (2006). He has recently exhibited work at the Prague Biennial 5, the Louis Vuitton Gallery in Macau, and at the Sharjah Biennal 9 in the UAE. His work is in the permanent collections of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the National Museum of Quebec.
