Grant Willing: Tierney Fellowship Recipient
The Tierney Fellowship is aimed at discovering and supporting emerging photographers and creating a community of artists. In addition to a monetary grant, recipients are technically consulted and mentored by seasoned experts. Grant Willing, a recent Parsons BFA Graduate and currently an Aperture Work Scholar, is a 2009 recipient of the Fellowship for his series Svart Metall. Grant will be traveling to Scandinavia to work further on this series, which is about black metal and the ideals, history and culture behind the often violent and cacophonous music. His work is a visual response to these themes, ranging from ancient Pagan and Satanic symbols to darkness and nature.
Check out Grant Willing’s photographs in a group show titled G.W.A.G.H.M.A.C.J.E.A.K.F.S.F.I.L.C.J.B.D.Z. at Daniel Cooney Fine Art Gallery, opening Thursday, June 11 in Chelsea.
