'Postcards From L.A.' by John Tierney

27 June - 10 July 2019
Los Angeles

Inspired by the architecture of L.A. – from the faded old glamour of legendary hangouts to the iconic new builds that have redefined the city – John Tierney pays tribute to an urban landscape he has long found fascinating.

Working primarily in oils, John Tierney creates stunning large-scale paintings that provide a strong sense of place; transporting viewers to the bright, sun-kissed streets that have had a profound influence on his practice. Conveying every intricate detail he sees before him, Tierney visits these various locations as an ‘outside’ observer – one who is fascinated by the differences between them and the urban and rural landscapes of Britain.

Hailing from Durham City, situated in the North East of England, Tierney is a regular visitor to Los Angeles and credits the light of the area as being of particular importance for his artworks. Inspired by the work of Edward Hopper, Peter Blake and David Hockney,‘Postcards from L.A.’ is an exhibition that celebrates the modern American landscape as seen through the eyes of one of the most exceptional British artists working today.
