Lush in texture and dynamic in line, Liv Dockerty’s paintings convey a feeling of movement and life. Born in 1992 in Miami, Liv Dockerty is an American contemporary abstract painter. Her artistic process began as a child and developed much throughout her life. She was born into a family of contemporary art collectors and now her primary source of inspiration hails from the world around her, mainly the sky and music. Liv studied art and design at the Parsons New School for Design in New York City where she received her Bachelors of Fine Arts. Her art is characterized by contrasting depths and vibrant colors, which give way to bold compositions. Colors push against one another, swirling and gathering to create a sense of dimension and form. Though abstract in composition, Dockerty’s paintings are rich in content. Their associative titles, often referencing song lyrics, evoke narratives and emotions, while her bold palette invites the viewer to indulge in the sensual pleasure of colors artfully combined.
