Sprick loves bones. Skulls figure prominently in traditional iconography, in the cells of penitent saints and vanitas still lifes. Through My Fingers (2010) features an offbeat vanitas still life, with a skull and a white rose, among others items. Sprick suggests a magician’s illusion by wrapping the supporting structure in white drapery.
