Liam Smith is a collage artist with interest in the vintage imagery and the way that the mind can create meaning for the viewer out what may appear to be chaotic or haphazard visual information. He has a background in photography, art history, and archives and synthesizes many of these aspects in my work. Some of his influences include artists Robert Rauchesberg, Jasper Johns, John Cage, Nam June Paik, Pablo Picasso, Kurt Schwitters, Henri Matisse, Bruce Conner, Ed Keinholz, and Man Ray as well as twentieth century popular culture. His work seeks to synthesize abstraction, images from a recent though quickly receding past, and aspects of visual noise such as printing screens and tv static into visual stimulating compositions. He lives in Manhattan with his terrier Scotty.
