With a subversive sense of humour, Justin Lieberman perverts and recontextualises images from the media and pop culture in an attempt to undermine the organisational structures inherent in contemporary culture. Lieberman has long employed this sort of methodology, which in past bodies of work has played out through the recognisable systems of advertising, furniture design, home shopping television, art conservation, and taxonomic display to name a few. Favouring the handmade to the mass-produced, Lieberman transforms readymade images and objects, by painting, collaging, and combining them in an unmistakable style informed by notions of excess and transgression.
