TO WHOMEVER THIS MAY CONCERN
Due to the exploitative and consuming effects of mass media on today’s art and culture, the contemporary
art scene is roughly divided into predictable (familiar cliches) and unpredictable (resisting predictable-interpretations-art-activities.)
Our Abstractrealim is the fault line of this divide. So far Abstractrealism© has neither been consumed nor recognized which sustains
this grand divide. Our art-activities have generated unpredictable experiences and responses, deeply altering perception and the
meaning of our culture, producing most influential results.
We will pursue our modest program into the distant future. We promise not to rape, murder or destroy your personal property.
We would like to bring to your great truth and beauty seeking institution our Abstractrealism, the most challenging art of our time.

LIZ-N-VAL ART STORY
As we were delivering our “somethings” to various exhibition spaces, we began noticing accidental dents, tears, scratches, dents,
breaks, finger-prints, paint splashes and other marks of real-living time. Because our exhibition spaces were small and basically poor,
we had to squeeze our creations through and unintentionally crushed our irreplaceable masterpieces, in the process. Right then, we
realized, many years ago, that these accidental collaborations with the living and breathing world produced results, both actual
and abstract. We were compelled to incorporate these newly discovered effects into our work and certify this miraculous phenomena
as Art and to sign these divine creations.

LIZ-N-VAL, AN ABBREVIATED COSMIC STORY
We recognize that reality can be fully comprehended, neither by direct experience, nor through words or
images alone, but rather, it can be more accurately understood and conveyed through our interactive actions
and reactions. Since words and images are poor substitutes for truth and beauty, we were obligated to create
Abstractrealism, Art of something from nothing, consisting of interactive net-works of events, originating in real
space and time, having real influence, based on documented authentic residues and verified personally, by us
and transformed into Art, by our signatures.
