Allison Tierney, Untitled, acrylic and latex on canvas, ceramic plates, 38 x 46 in

Allison Tierney received her MFA in painting from UNC-CH. Tierney defines painting in a broad manner – it can refer to non-rectilinear forms, objects, and even free-standing structures. Recently, her paintings have been an exploration of materials and the potential object-ness of paint. The work is an exploration of process, an investigation of material manipulation, and an examination of space.

The paintings exist within space rather than solely on the surface of a wall. They implicate the viewer by forcing them to respond to the presentation of the work. This can come in the form of pieces extending off the wall or the viewer having to walk around the painting. This can even happen in a voyeuristic manner where the viewer must peer around and into the work purposefully to be able to fully see.
