Siobhan Liddell (born in England, lives in New York) is a painter and sculptor whose work deals with the space between knowing and unknowing, the mystery in the everyday, history, and the contiuum of desire to record and create our unique worlds.

Siobhan's work has always found a means through subtlety, engaging spaces with a delicate awareness, using ambient light and the reflective color of materials that, in their faintly glowing hues and unassuming nature, hold a quiet power beside her intermittent and poetic use of text. There is a profound simplicity in her works that comes from a seemingly meditative understanding of material and process, where there appears a reciprocated evolution of form and meaning over time and the wavering emergence of the intangible.

In addition to exhibiting regularly in NYC Siobhan Liddell’s work has been shown at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds, England, at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, and at C.C. A. Itakyushu, Japan. She was in the 1995 Whitney Biennial. She is the recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Award.

She has collaborated with artists, dancers and musicians and was the recipient of the Rome Prize: Vera List Fellowship 2011-12.
