DEREK LIDDINGTON
The works re-engage abstraction as a means to establish a connectedness, and dependency, between narrative and form. Be it my own personal histories or associations presented through the titles or an audience’s reaction to the imagery, the works primary function is to elicit unease between the readability of form, surface, objects, assemblage and appropriation within a single visual ground.

Mark making is an outcome of labor. In my work the marks on the wall, indentations on metal, lines on a surface are made in consideration of my body. The use of form in the work is reflective of my thinking surrounding labor and politics resulting in pictures and gestures that attempt to communicate a pivoting aesthetic balance inherent in the contemporary.
