*solo exhibition* 
Songs for Presidents ,  Ridgewood NY
January 8- February 14 2016 
curated by Charles Goldman

 "The Tiffany One-Cuts are Liotta's third series of collage works that stem directly from her daily movements through the  New York Times. These simple "one-cut" framings of opposites and the frictions between them point to the inherent tensions found within the relationship between documented, the documenter and their audience. Liotta's explorations, on paper and in celluloid, concerns the politics of the cut. ... A simple edit, such as he one Liotta performs with the One-Cuts, is simultaneously aesthetic, narrative and political."  -Charles Goldman, Songs for Presidents 2016

Tempr (l-lV)

A set of sumi ink drawings made onto exposed negative for slide projection and performance. 
Unique, dimensions variable. 

The practice of forming the enso with a single brushstroke is zen. From heavenly body to existential void to our finite and beleagured planet here at the brink of the Anthropocene.
