Canadian artist David Spriggs with his very large installation and unique works. It is difficult not to stare for a long while at his fabulous installations!

"Gold is the latest in David Spriggs’ chromatic artwork series of Stratachromes that examine contemporary symbolic meanings of color. Spriggs’ monumental installation presents eleven inverted yellow-golden human figures painted on layers of transparent sheets that are hung within an inverted pyramid structure. Initially reminiscent of the pediment of the New York Stock Exchange, Gold, in the spirit of pittura infamante (defaming portrait) turns the glory of capitalism on its apex, revealing its current precarious state. It speaks to the widening inequity within the Global Wealth Pyramid and the concentration of excessive wealth and corresponding power into the hands of a select few."
