Matthew Tierney
Babylon - Fluorescent Pure Pigment Print

2018

$3,500

About

As David Hockney quoted about Matthew Tierney's Work: “Perspective is a frozen moment. That’s what you’re shattering” - David Hockney After filming light sources (fluorescents, halogens, neons, LEDs, etc.) for over four years, Matthew Tierney began collaging the source material to create the abstractions and backgrounds for “Babylon,” a two-channel video installation (w/ sound) aimed at creating a sobering yet positive view of the contemporary American landscape. Addressing social issues, technology, politics, and popular culture, the found footage in “Babylon” is placed within colorful and livened backgrounds. To utilize the source material, Matthew filmed television screens, iPhones, and iPads and then reprojected the moving images, reiterating transfer process from screen to film to screen. The video installation and accompanying stills, as he puts, “are simply a projection of light.” And thusly, from a source of love. To set the tone of “Babylon,” Matthew Tierney also remixed David Gray’s 1999 song of the same name, adding his own vocals, sound design, drum patterning and synthesizers. In these often dark, unfamiliar, and rapidly changing times, Matthew Tierney hopes that we may see the light within his video, and amongst the abstract stills so as to always remember: That life is strange, surreal, and ever beautiful. Too, that our contemporary landscape can be positive and exceptional if we may live in light and love. Bright fluorescent colors. Bright fluorescent colors. This Photography work 80 inches by 45 inches. “Perspective is a frozen moment. That’s what you’re shattering” - David Hockney
