“A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That’s why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers rarely meet.” – Truman Capote

Art is a conversation between the artist and the subject; the work and the viewer; between the contemporary and art history – and in the case of a two person show, between the artists involved. Liam and Ed have made work in close proximity together for over four years and their work deals with similar themes, including what it is to be a painter in the current artistic environment.

Sometimes, the conversations surrounding art can be awkward – Awkward Conversations aims to be a confrontation or clash of two peoples work. It also aims to ask as many questions as it does provide answers – to be a visual conversation between two peoples work, even if that conversation is awkward.
