“Between”: Steve Tierney
Steve Tierney creates floating landscapes where figures interact amongst faces and words dissected by machinery and everyday objects in a collage of imagery cut and pasted from magazines and advertising of the 50’s and 60’s.
Most of the works featured in “Between” were created while Tierney was living in Oaxaca, southern Mexico in 2014 and continue from a small series he produced for an exhibition there, “Máscaras”, which was a personal look at identity and self, shown through collaged images of abstract faces and distorted profiles.
This new body of work takes the theme of identity further, focusing on examples of human behaviour and social interactions around gender roles and stereotypes of the past and of today, always keeping an ironic and tongue-in-cheek view of the world in front of him.
