Molly Tierney grew up in a small town in Minnesota, and has called Los Angeles her home for over ten years. Tierney studied photography and art history in Pasadena and currently works as a professional photographer.  

Tierney’s work deals with current social and political events drawn from her own life experiences.  Her work is made from mostly found and recycled materials.  Her work is an amalgamation of built up layers of debris and materials such as old house paint, common building materials, plaster, cement, and asphalt.  

Her current series of "Black Paintings"  are built up over time with sludge like markings using oil based paints & applied mostly by hand or hardware tools. Tierney works in painting, sculpture, and experimental photography.
