Tim Liddy: Stratagem
Tim Liddy... Circa 1970 (Quija) (Enamel, oil on copper). From Tim Liddy: Stratagem at Kidder Smith Gallery. "...Based on the illustrated box lids of vintage board games, Liddy has recontextualized a subject, which evokes the underlying rules of life. Painted on copper or steel in the precise dimensions of the original, the metal is then manipulated to demonstrate the exact rips and tears from years of usage and includes trompe-l'oeil renditions of the scotch tape that might be holding the cardboard box together, the assorted stains, or the various graffiti of time." Also... Works by Tim Liddy at his personal site.
