Mixed Media Painting by New Artist Luke Finn

About

After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2008 with a degree in Drawing and Painting, I have began to have my work shown in galleries in both my home town of Manchester, as well as Edinburgh and other Citiesà‚ across the UK. At the heart of my work is a love of colour, drawing inspiration from the artists I most admire; Kandinsky, Rothko, Matisse. More recently I have began to marry my abstracted, colourful drawings with the bold, graphic elements of my secondary inspiration; Cd covers, posters, wallpaper, and just about anything in the visual world with a clean, crisp finish. This recent work has utilised lino and wood cuts, merging defined, regimented shapes with a colourful, dream like background, often with a figurative element. I work predominantly in acrylics for their immediacy and bold colours, using palette knives, scraping tools and rags to build up backgrounds, only using brushes for finishing touches or intricate areas. I aim for my work to be visually arresting, often, building up layers of colour and texture, interspersed with smaller, more defined marks, always retaining an abstract impressionist quality.As far as narrative goes in my work, I see my pieces as purely a marriage of colour and shape that interact well together. The use of colour and technique making them independent from any representational forms.
