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 question notions of reality and identity through experimentation in process, exploring how this can reveal points where one thing becomes another. His work aims 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 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
