Liam Jolly graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art in 2001. Based in Cornwall he is currently studying an MA in Fine Art Contemporary Practice at University College Falmouth.
Rooted in the language of abstract painting, his concept driven multi disciplinary works are the result of experimenting with what/where the work can be in a process led practice. His works aim to exist within the divide between before and after, actual fact and performance.
Alongside his practice a fortuitous and extremely involved role within the world of music over the past 10 years as both performer and musical curator has seen his work become further influenced by ideas of performance as metaphor, the material of music and the deconstructed spirit of Rock & Roll.
He is also the founder/director/curator of Tardis Projects, an artist run project that launched in July 2011 with an exhibition of Martin Creed's Work No. 227 : The lights going on and off at Tardis House Truro. For more information visit www.tardisprojects.co.uk
__CMR is an artist-led initiative designed to create a community of artists who will exhibit and flourish within this three storey building. It is a voluntary-run organisation and project. We aim to be all inclusive; we aim to encourage adventurous work that will respond and challenge not only to CMR’s various spaces but also the broader Contemporary Art landscape of Cornwall.
Want to be involved?
Membership is open to artists, makers, curators, writers and thinkers at all stages of their careers who are interested in developing a rigorous, critically engaged level of contemporary practice, and who are interested in actively contributing to help promote the overall well-being of the project.
