'Self-Portrait/The Rise', Site-Specific Digital Projection, Bristol (2015).
Liam Dunne’s practice explores human relationship with power, the complexities it brings to ones everyday surroundings and life, within his work. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. His interest in unintentionally referencing social injustices, with recent works, his focus is on wide scale complexity of subjects in a multi-layered way forming a constellation or as he puts it a "Visual Shitstorm". In this way he uses a visual vocabulary that addresses many diverse social and political issues.
Dunne conveys to us his critical, cynical analysis of art being like fashion, which artists become borrowed and their work regurgitated into an unprecedented situation in which the viewer is confronted with visual pollution, the conditioning of their own perception and has to reconsider their biased position. His works bear strong political references and deadpan humour, which is subconsciously within him in his production.
