Tierney Malone is a man who is forever seeking answers. What distances Malone from the token deep thinker is that hes able to translate his reflections into a tangible piece of writing, music or visual artwork that more often than not wows an audience. For his current show, Ruminations of a Cluttered Mindat PG Contemporary Gallery, a detail of which is shown here, Malone has created a 17-piece installation that measures eight feet in height and 20 feet in width. It is a tone poem of sorts that reflects my ideas about the current issues we are facing in the world, says Malone. The wars we are engaged in, the cost of these wars, the burden we are inflicting on the environment and the hypocrisy that religion plays in it all. My visual rendition of Marvin Gayes Whats Going On.
According to Malone, there will also be a sonic component that the storyteller/sound maker has composed. I create a soundtrack for most of my work, he says. It is the musical source material that helps me maintain the emotional color and gravity of the subject I am channeling. This is the first time Im presenting the soundtrack with the piece as a part of the work. 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Through October 8. 3227 1/2 Milam.
