Mistaken identities converge and separate again in the harsh burn of optical truths. Images revolt and stand on their heads. The story of photography told as a Western.

The Tiffany One-Cuts
 Series of 'one-cut' newspaper collages excised as one piece from the New York Times
8.5 x 11 inches.  (2013- 2017 )
solo exhibition
    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

 In framing NOAA’s hard facts by J.G. Ballard’s scenario in The Drowned World, Liotta suggests that wrapping one’s head around climate change requires visionary speculation as much as scientific observation."Max Goldberg, SFAQ Magazine 2014
