Liam Crichton (b.1984 Scotland)
Crichton creates large-scale sculptures and installations that investigate physical space. Containing references to and elements of a post-minimal realisation, his aesthetically driven and predominately site specific work is often characterised by a sense of dichotomy that challenges traditional perceptions and cultural surroundings. In an abstract systematic reductive process he breaks down the impression of the familiar to its bare essence. He operates through a non-linear, conceptual and formal vernacular sculptural praxis. Crichton has recently exhibited in Edinburgh, London, Philadelphia, Dublin, and Belfast.
THROUGH THE TRAVERSE OF NOW,
I STAND IN WHAT IS NOTHING AND NOWHERE.
A PURGATORY STATE,
THE PAST AND FUTURE BECKON SIMULTANEOUSLY;
ABSTRACT REALMS THAT GIVE RISE TO FEELING AND THOUGHT.
THIS IS YOUR PASSAGE AND YOU AREN’T FREE FROM NOW
