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.
LOS ANGELES, CA, July 02, 2019 /Neptune100/ — On June 27th, Maddox Gallery Los Angeles hosted an event in celebration of the opening of their latest art exhibition, “Postcards from L.A.”, by John Tierney. Influenced by the works of Edward Hopper, Peter Blake and David Hockney, “Postcards from L.A.” celebrates the modern American landscape as seen through the eyes of one of Britain’s most exceptional contemporary artists.
Working primarily in oils, Tierney creates stunning large-scale paintings that provide a strong sense of place, transporting viewers to the sun-kissed streets and iconic locations that have had a profound influence on his practice. Conveying each intricate detail he sees before him, he visits these various locales as an ‘outside’ observer – one fascinated by the differences between them and the urban and rural landscapes of Britain.
Curated by Megan Phillips, the exhibit runs from June 27th to July 15th.
The event was sponsored by Maddox Gallery and Guillotine Vodka.
8811 Beverly Boulevard West Hollywood, CA. (424) 313-8281.
Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm. Closed on Sundays.
About Maddox Gallery:
Maddox Gallery is fast emerging as one of the most stylish young international contemporary art destinations. Dedicated to supporting and showcasing the work of blue-chip, established and emerging artists from across the globe, in under five years the galleries have built a reputation for exhibiting exclusive, cutting-edge work from the likes of Bradley Theodore, Coco Dávez, Jerkface, Banksy and David Yarrow.
Established in 2015, the beautiful 3750 square foot Victorian townhouse located on Maddox Street in the heart of Mayfair, has become a cultural hub for collectors, buyers, artists and art-lovers. Two more West London-based galleries have since opened, with one situated in Westbourne Grove and one in Shepherd Market. In December 2017, the Maddox Gallery group opened its first international gallery in the prestigious alpine ski resort of Gstaad, Switzerland. Maddox Gallery Los Angeles is the newest gallery location and first in the United States, having opened its doors in September 2018.
