Daniel Finch, Twin Kittens Gallery
Daniel Finch’s large paintings reconstruct mechanical images distorted and degraded by processes of automation and transmission. Daniel shares what compels the physicality of the painting process as opposed to other methods of rendering these images;
“Through my physical interaction, my greatest hope for both myself and my viewer is a reconnection with the primacy and energy of the initial event portrayed.”
The figures within his pictures are, in great part, a search for the remnants of masculine identity among the media icons of his generation. Daniel continues,
“It is no accident that the majority of my subject matter is taken from modern archetypal characters and events, whether historic or mythical: King Kong, Evel Knievel, Bruce Lee, etc. They were, for better or worse, powerful symbols for a young boy growing up in the wake of the sexual revolution, in the post-Vietnam 70’s.”
Daniel Finch’s work was exhibited last month at Twin Kittens Gallery’s show Pipeline. Click here for more information.
