Born in 1953 in Little Rock, Arkansas, Sprick currently lives and works in Denver, Colorado. Museum shows of his work include the Museum of Outdoor Art in Englewood, Colorado; the Hunter Museum of Art, Chattanooga, Tennessee; the Evansville Museum of Art and Science, Indiana; and the Denver Art Museum. Sprick’s work is represented in numerous public collections, among them the Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock; the Denver Art Museum; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C. An articulate spokesman about the nature of art and his own work, Sprick is the subject of a PBS documentary.
A diverse range of men, women, and youth populate his portraits and figurative works; taken together, they reflect a rich and encompassing view of humanity. In his still lifes, which recall those of the Dutch and Flemish traditions, Sprick brings together the extravagant—including silver chalices and white tablecloths—and the mundane, such as old bottles and string, in elegantly, balanced arrangements.
