Liverman’s work examines the simple and mundane moments in our lives that are frequently overlooked. He approaches his work intuitively and with an aesthetic that at first may seem incomplete, unbalanced or rough. He is intentionally breaking from traditional methods and concepts of perfection to find a beauty and create an intimacy within his work. Liverman starts with marker drawings on paper – markers because they’re portable and allow a fluidity of production in a fleeting distracted world. He then paints the drawings as oil paintings on a variety of substrates. His work for this show in the Project Room is a series of domestic interiors or still-lifes that share his “kitchen table” as a unifying motif.
