    and flood the City of London Liversidge usually creates the proposals within a self imposed timeline that is related to a forthcoming exhibition or project many are site specific The resultant exhibition includes the manifestation of some of the ideas as well as the framed proposals both realized and unrealized The first object produced in any series is a book collating the entire set of proposals He draws inspiration not just from Conceptual artists such as On Kawara Fischli and Weiss and Keith Arnatt but also from artists such as Joseph Cornell and the Reverend Howard Finster as well as inveterate tinkerers like his own grandfathers Liversidge is driven by the generative notion of creativity and the idea that art is most successful when it exists slightly outside of formalist notions of fine art To this end the physical objects Liversidge produces often include banal everyday materials that are repurposed or co opted for his use He believes that his work is universally accessible and in fact requires the presence of the viewer and their unique interpretation of the proposals to complete the aesthetic experience The artist s active engagement with each space and community for which he creates proposals
