By Liam Aitken
Breeze explores connectivity, influence and how we are capable of functioning within the complex systems, whilst still having the room to excerpt a sense of individual expression. Breeze is a looped two second excerpt from a longer piece of footage that observes the shadow of a fence dancing in the breeze and the afternoon sun light. Liam Aiken makes site specific works, paintings and objects that experiment in colour, geometric pattern and the act of seeing. Works are often made in response to autobiographical experiences, points in history, landscape, iconic architecture and natural phenomena. Having graduated from Nottingham Trent University Fine Art course (2007) Liam Aiken is currently based at Primary studios in Nottingham. He has exhibited throughout the UK as an artist and with collective Tether. His first solo exhibition was held at Syson in March 2014. He is currently exhibiting Tempered at Loughborough University Arts until September 2015.
