 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 spatial levels, calling for a different mode of viewing each time. His meticulous way of working offers insight into the balance between control and unpredictability. Chance and risk are allowed full scope, so that intention and the unexpected converge. Born in Dublin, in 1967. Living in Germany since 2005 and since 2006 in Goettingen. "After my studies in DunLaoighre School of Art und Dublin Institute of Technology Mountjoy Sq., Dublin, I have taken part in art exhibitions on a national and international level. My work is found in public and private collections in many countries."
