In this solo exhibition of paintings, Kierans has depicted surreal scenarios that are conjured
from his imagination. Although often dealing with everyday experiences, these sometimes unsettling images hover between horror and science fiction.
The artist is interested in how imagination shapes and transforms our experience and how
internal narratives are conceived and influence our thoughts, imagination, dreams, and
desires. Specific motifs taken from popular culture appear and reappear: Tippie Hedren, one
of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic heroines, is seen in one work as a topless gardener in rubber
gloves tending a young sapling, and in another as a faceless shop dummy in a complex
painting, where strange and seemingly unrelated characters are jostled together in a faux
It is the artist’s commitment to bringing together the unrelated that offers his paintings a
dream-like unease and powerful unreliability.
