ANDREA TIERNEY

artist residency

May 2011 - Artist residency in Malo, northern Italy.

A month-long residency in the small town of Malo, 10 km north of Vicenza, resultet in a series of new paintings, semi-abstracts, based on photographs taken during trips to Vicenza, Verona, Padua, Venice and Bassano.

The works are a combination of watercolour and pastels to arrive at the intensity of colour I was aiming for.

The series will be part of an exhibition of new watercolours at the North Wall Art Gallery in Oxford from 1 - 18 November 2011.

A month-long residency in the world heritage town of Krumau, close to the Austrian border. The studio was situated in an old brewery building by the river Moldau - a beautiful river, which the composers Dvorak and Smetana have immortalised in their music. The painter Egon Schiele lived in Krumau and painted his famous views of the town and river.

My work was focussed on the river and its surrounds and captures its colours and movement at different times of day.

Month-long residency at Villa Stonborough-Wittgenstein.

I spent 2 weeks learning to make paper at the Steyrermuehl paper manufacturer Ludwig Hobl. Using my own manufactured paper I created a series of artworks entitled 'Reflexionen zu Thomas Bernhard'.

I had previously translated the play 'Heldenplatz' by Thomas Bernhard and this my in-depth attempt to approach Bernhard as a visual artist.
