Kathleen Finney’s process is a building up and tearing down of form and line that is secured by deep muted blues, intense black & translucent white; punctuated by rich jewel tones.
While the work conjures a type of mysterious landscape, they can also be considered aerial observations; incorporating geometric complexities with spontaneous mark-making.
With the use of diverse media, the artist conveys a sense of complex history and illusive memory, without giving way to any specific narrative. This intuitive approach to the surface, while unsettled & mysterious, enables a continuation of an unending visual journey and intellectual examination.
Kathleen is a third generation San Franciscan, who lives and works in the city. She studied at: California College of the Arts, San Francisco Art Institute, and UC Berkeley Extension. Her work is exhibited nationally and internationally.
