Tim Liddy

Oil Paintings

With this recent work, Liddy initially wanted to create a time capsule of the board games Americans played — focusing on the design, gender stereotypes, social themes, and evolution. He documented the box tops or covers. There were some strange and very questionable social/political decisions made within the themes and designs of these 
games. "It was the times we lived in then. By re-contextualizing the subject you can 
really see them anew.” 
They are as much sculpture as they are paintings. Primarily on copper or steel, they 
are in the size of the original (although some are fictional). Everything, including the 
tape, stains, and tears are documented and archival. Tim was one of 100 artists chosen in 2014 to participate in the Crystal Bridges Museum show "State of the Art".
