SEP 22nd 7PM ET / 4PM PT Considering Art : Considering Everyday
The work ofLiam Mertensis influenced by popular culture, cinema and colour theory. Simplicity is at the core, as he monumentalizes memories of the everyday. In the studio, Mertens taps into moments from his past through researching music, advertisements, films and cultural events. The personal moments that come to the fore through this process are of the everyday, however, the emotional weight has shifted through being collaged and enlarged in the studio.
