March 19 - April 5
is excited to invite Lo Tierney into the gallery for their first solo
exhibition. Tierney is a freelance illustrator from and based in
Liverpool whose work often takes the subject of intersectional
activism, supporting different communities in LGBTQ+ and disabled
In this exhibition, titled ‘Spectrum,’ the artist
presents portraits of autistic people, including a self-portrait of the
artist themselves. 'Spectrum’ is an ongoing body of work that aims to
bring people together and start a conversation between people with
autism and allies. ‘What advice would you give on coping with autism?
And what makes a good autism ally?' There is space in the show where
visitors can contribute their thoughts, which will be gathered and
formulated into illustrations and a zine.
Tierney graduated from
LJMU BA Illustration in 2015, and has since been involved with projects
during Light Night, ‘Coming Out’ at the Walker Art Gallery, as well as
the group Artists Against Rampant Transphobia.
Artist Lo Tierney made an exhibition tour here.
