Brendan Tierney

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday December 29
Backspace
115 NW 5th Ave.
 
In an unfocused four-artist show in which many paintings aren’t marked with identifying labels, painter Brendan Tierney stands out from the fray. In a style influenced by graffiti tagging, he depicts the same woman—her head thrust upward, arms flung ecstatically outward—against a multitude of backgrounds, which alternately suggest cityscapes or pure abstraction. Acrylic paint on wood panel, the works exemplify the lowbrow sensibility that has long been the pictorial signature of this versatile multiuse space. Closes Dec. 30.
