UTOPIA IS A GREEK WORD FOR NOWHERE

(

(Michael S. Tierney with Christine Anderson at Blythe Projects 1/14/11)

As a baby boomer I grew up with space travel.  I remember watching John Glenn on television  during my 4th grade teacher's lunch time.  When I spoke with Michael on opening night he shared his personal connection with aerospace.  Because many of the images focus on the internal views of the spacecrafts, they are reminiscent of regressing into an embryonic nest.  The images of the space suits and capsules appear like suspended albumin and time travel.

Michael mentioned that he was formerly a painter who created large color field paintings with a palette of goldenrod and sea foam green.  This palette continues in his photographs.
