Liam Collins Worcestershire, United Kingdom
I'm an abstract painter/sculptor. working in mixed media. My work aims to encourage critical thinking through the study of progressive knowledge by researching the thought processes that ancient people went through. I look at playful puzzles in nature & science designed to draw upon curiosity and wonder. This includes deep wisdom & insight of great inventors, and architects of science.
I'm a UK Artist who has dedicated his career to a life-long process working with and exhibiting Art and Site-specific Sculpture, made from precious metals and found materials. My work includes influences from Nature, Astrophysicists to the historical ancient worlds. My intent is to encourage critical thinking through the study of progressive knowledge. By researching the thought processes that ancient people went through, I look for playful provocative puzzles designed to draw the viewer in with their curiosity and wonder. It is here with my found materials, I find myself exploring ways through my creative expression applying the materials in line with my feelings until they resonate through the complex layers of the higher self. Like water divining, I look to where secret meanings are hidden within the fabric of unchartered quantum power and connections within the subconscious mind. My creativity is drawn from my unusual life experiences. Raised in children's homes and spirited abroad at 12 years old, living alone in the Caves of Minoan Tombs in Matala and living off the land. Sleeping on the beach under the stars for 3 years.
