John Finneran




John Finneran's early practice employed various mediums in the production of paintings, objects and assemblages with a child-like, faux-naïf aesthetic.These interests evolved into a principal focus on painting, and while the simply-stated iconography and humour remain, the works are complicated through an emphasis on composition and painterly process.
Working on aluminium surfaces that are themselves used to achieve tonality, Finneran characteristically depicts multiple objects (with a particular penchant for noses, mouths and trashcans).On one level a playful take on Warholian mechanisation and serial imagery, Finneran in fact emphasises the artist's presence through a taut, sketchy style and very human mark-making process.
