Peter Liversidge
10 September–14 December 2014

Peter Liversidge’s polymath approach to making artworks has resulted in a diverse body of work, which exists within the writing of Proposals.

The typewriter-typed Proposals create a framework within which realized works exist engaging; sculpture, painting, performance, installation, intervention, book works alongside proposed works which exist solely as typed ideas on A4 pieces of paper.

For Revolver II a single work is proposed. The Sign Paintings are black acrylic on cardboard, installed to the exterior of Matt’s Gallery. Part painting, part performance, part documentation, the text signs will evolve day and night, as the show unfolds from September to December.
