ART IS LOVE,
LOVE IS AN ART
Art Is Love, Love Is An Art by Anthony Liggins
A photographic journey with artist Anthony Liggins, Art Is Love, Love Is An Art captures the Liggins’ artwork, his collectors and influences that have inspired him throughout his career. Working primarily with acrylic paint, Liggins imparts his philosophies of interconnectedness and transcending socially constructed boundaries with his sweeping dream-like landscapes and bold but balanced brushstrokes. Liggins incorporates photography, antique wood printing blocks, chopsticks, yarn, and pressed dot patterns into his work to symbolize the impermanence of time, nourishment of the spirit, and the connections that are hidden but exist between us all. His work is informed by Eastern philosophies such as Zen and Wabi-sabi, his career as a fashion designer, influences of Latin Jazz, and his travels abroad.
"it is as though Mark Rothko’s dream-drenched colors were blended with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s evocative markings… the overall composition suggests a drift and movement… thoughtful energy that sometimes uses mark-making, but so subtly that the dynamics of color always predominate.”
/ The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“His well-composed abstractions are bursting with color, mixing powerful hues with geometric shapes that are precise or suggested. They form a veritable symphony of senses as they juxtapose moments of high energy and delicate fields of rest. Well-known public collections as well as famous private collectors share the privilege of owning paintings by Liggins, who delivers artwork that is fresh, dynamic, and filled with emotion and optimism.”
/ Art Critic, Nice Matin, France
“A colorist of international reputation, [Liggins] excels in reds and blues, which he utilizes to transmit his joie de vivre. His persuasive power is equaled only by his talent, thanks to which he succeeds at pressing into his canvases a diversity of juxtaposed geometric forms, both vibrant and surrealist. With the sweep of a brush, he gives birth to sensations and emotions which leap off the canvas and enchant the public.”
