Born in 1973 in Rochester, New York (United States), LIAM EVERETT lives and works in Northern California (United States). Everett says “With painting there is a very primitive and accessible way to move between two points, back and forth, addition and subtraction. In this way there is always a return, a repeat and therefore a system of constant flux and viscosity. Out of and from this repeat is the residual - debris or sparks that one may attempt to catch and to hold. Through this process, there is the potential to remain acutely aware of the present and to observe the curious ways it reveals itself through form and light.” Kamel Mennour and Liam Everett have been working together since 2017.
His work has been included in exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Biennale of Painting, Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle, Belgium; U.C. Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive; San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art; CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco.
Everett has received the SECA Art Award at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2017), the Richard Diebenkorn Teaching Fellowship at the San Francisco Art Institute (2013) and the San Francisco Artadia Award (2013).
