Vivian Liddell
What Fascism Means/ Ass of Steel - Abstract Sewn Fabric Contemporary Mixed Media

2017

$650

About

“What Fascism Means/Ass of Steel,” is a mixed media work on paper, with ink and textiles. This piece is mixes gestural abstraction and text to create the composition. Liddell often walks the line between contemporary art and craft. Working to bring materials that are traditionally labeled as "craft" and lesser into the contemporary conversation. Mixing craft with one of the most respected and oldest forms of fine art, painting, really encourages the viewer to view the two on the same playing field. The idea of craft is settled into these gestural, layered works, constantly critiquing contemporary culture. This piece is not framed, but we are able to work with a framer local to you in order to have it framed and ready to hang. We can also frame it before shipment. For new listings, more work by Liddell and sales, please follow our storefront at Gallery 1202. "As a painter, I often work on large, raw canvas. My abstract paintings merge formal painting and “bad” craft to challenge the high-low separation of materials (and related gender hierarchies) that have traditionally been present in the art world. The monotypes are like a calligraphic practice. I use them as a warm up to allow me to feel confident with a gesture before committing it to a larger scale. I work in layers, often sewing or incorporating fabric into the finished piece, and incorporate chance into each stage of my process. The text/titles often come from song lyrics, local radio commercials, and news headlines. I edit these snippets and piece them together to reflect my interpretation of current politics and social norms, especially as they relate to gender." We will ship this via standard parcel boxed with internal support to maintain the integrity of the piece. The work will be fully insured during shipping. If you prefer a different method of shipping, inquire and we are happy to accommodate your requests. Our first priorities are our collectors satisfaction, and the artwork's safety in transit. We accept returns within 7 days, if we are notified within 24hrs of receipt of the work to ensure a worry-free collecting process. If you are local to the San Francisco Bay Area, we will deliver for free. Handling time will be 2-3 business days, and shipping will be 2-5 business days from date of order confirmation for standard parcel.
