The monotony of modern American life can bog us down and cause us to lose sight of what matters. When we become preoccupied with trivial things that are ultimately worthless we are capable of forgetting those things that really matter in life. In this series of paintings, Brendan Tierney explores the moment of epiphany that we as human beings are sometimes fortunate to experience, when we are, if only momentarily, liberated from the mental and emotional confines of mediocrity and meaninglessness, free to see and experience the very real existence of love, beauty, and joy.  In these depictions, he creates a sensation of elevation, of being lifted up above one's day to day circumstance and surroundings, attaining a higher perspective and understanding of the "big picture" Visually expressing this profound experience is is quite a lofty ambition that for Tierney serves as a way to remind himself to stay in a place of love and gratitude. To him, this artwork serves as an opportunity to have a positive impact in a person's life.
