Daniel Tierney

Like many young artists Daniel Tierney was raised on video games, but the similarities probably end there. Tierney’s obsession with the implied space found in digitally fabricated computer game landscapes form the basis for his hard to categorize artwork. With equal parts drawing, painting and digital photography, he collages together complex layers of images and crumpled paper to form his over-the-top installations. Tierney who received a Goldie Award from the Bay Guardian and was also presented at the Headlands last year, describes his new work at Kala as “ a model that imagines ten thousand pairs of running shoes, an unknown and variable amount with their shoelaces tied together running an obstacle course of cardboard pixels and paper flag poles.”
