Art at The DEN opens our Spring Season 2018 with artist Drew Liverman. Liverman’s work is lucid and elegant, examining the simple and mundane moments in our lives that often go frequently overlooked. He approaches his work intuitively with an aesthetic that at first glance would seem incomplete, unbalanced and quite literally rough around the edges. With images reduced to single colors, curious applications of paint, and an emphasis on materials such as burlap and denim, Liverman is intentionally delineating from traditional methods to see beyond prevailing concepts of perfection and still find beauty. His talent at combining the unconventional to create an intimacy within his work is worth experiencing.
Liverman is an artist and designer living in Austin, Texas. He received his B.F.A. in painting and printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002. Liverman’s drawing, painting, screen-printing, video/animation, and installation work has been featured in Beautiful Decay Magazine and shown in The Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow, Scotland; Atelier als Supermedium Artists Space for Contemporary Art Den Haag/Rijswijk, The Netherlands; and the Lawndale Art Center in Houston, Texas. In addition to his personal work, he contributes to the Austin, Texas based art collective, Boozefox and has been an active MASS Gallery member since 2007.
