(Image: Fintan Whelan, Temptation, 2014, Mixed media on wooden panel, 40 x 50 x 1 centimeters; © Fintan Whelan) Fintan Whelan (b. 1967, Dublin) For Fintan Whelan, embracing abstraction does not mean a departure from the representational world. Instead, his painting is based on a dialectic principle that facilitates association with the world of things. At times, we seem to recognise a horizon, a reflection, a shadow, with space being split up into the different levels, calling for a di... [more]

Akron, Ohio) These recent abstractions are process driven and intuitively born. They were made while reflecting on structure, organized systems, accumulation and the unpredictable human element.
