Whilst considering the relationships between language, knowledge and visual experience, the main focus of Liam Jolly’s varied practice lies in exploring the shift in meaning that takes place between a fiction and reality.
His works tread a fine line between these opposing concepts, employing double take and changing points of view as a mechanism to challenge our assumptions of what we are being presented with.
By playfully questioning the material, mechanics and structures of when something is considered an art work and when it is not, he is making us question our perception of reality in unexpected or subversive ways.
