About Me

Liv Dockerty is an American contemporary abstract painter from Miami. Her artistic process began as a child and developed much throughout her life. Her primary source of inspiration hails from cloudy skies at sunset and sunrise. Dockerty studied art and design at the Parsons School of Design in New York City where she received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts.  Her work seeks to explore the duality of abstract compositions with realistic cloud formations challenging the notion of abstraction and realism as two separate forms of art. With the use of her signature interference paints, the paintings color shift when the viewers vantage point changes, thus giving the viewer an interactive connection to each work. The clouds move with you. Though abstract in composition, Dockerty’s paintings are rich in content. Their associative titles, often referencing Classic Rock song lyrics, evoke narratives and emotions, while her bold palette invites the viewer to indulge in the sensual pleasure of a dreamlike state.
