About Shannon


A sculptor, painter, and animator, Shannon Finley creates works that reflect a strong interest in geometric abstraction. Working across multiple platforms, Finley explores the way a defined aesthetic can translate to various forms of media. His works on paper, sculptures, and video animations all evince a hard linearity, with patterns composed of sharp angles and geometric forms. Though the works appear abstract at first glance, upon closer inspection they reveal an interest in representational imagery, with geometric forms giving way to human-like figures. Using a varied palette, from bold, bright colors, to deep shades of blue, red, and green, Finley pushes the boundaries of painting, using color to create an optical depth in his work that is not often seen in two-dimensional paintings. Finley’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe.

i like this!

Great!

Nice!

It's colorful

They're abstract.

OK, my closer (and closer) inspection of Mr. Finley's work and they aren't revealing any interest in representational imagery that I can see beyond, perhaps, some very interesting quilts. I keep waiting for the geometric forms to give way to human-like figures and, unlike "Nude Descending a Staircase", it just ain't happening. There are, quite literally, MILLIONS of artists doing images like these and, as nicely and competently executed as these are, in my pointless opinion, they denote more craftsmanship than aesthetic sensibility.

I love it!

I relly like the diff collors

that is very nice

creepy
