I am interested in photography and found images as a way to reconstruct memories, landscapes, and portraits. The documentation of events with my Polaroid cameras and the accumulation of journals, magazines, and miscellaneous photographs have manifested into a collection of experiences of both mine and foreign. This collection is then broken down, dissected, and reassembled through an integration of painting, photography, and collage to create disembodied nostalgias.
Jacob Spriggs is a visual artist native to Minnesota. In 2012 he received his B.F.A. in Studio Art with a double major in Art History at St. Cloud State University, and was a founding member of The Gallery Vault in downtown Saint Cloud. Working with Polaroid instant film and the collection/appropriation of found photographs, his work blurs the lines between a diary and the fictive. He recently relocated to Olympia, Washington in search of new surroundings/people in pursuit of a broadening artistic practice.
