  • Keith Finly Exhibtion

    June 1st through July 30, 2011

    Admission is Free/ Open to the Public

    During his academic training, Keith Finly became fascinated with traditional still lifes.  His paintings have evolved into what he now describes as portraits of fruit, vegetables, shells and flowers.

    His artistic invasive exploration of these objects, coupled with his meticulous craftsmanship, prompts the viewer to reexamine that which was thought to be familiar.

    By his untraditional use of the word Portrait, Finly wishes to convey a specific individuality to his subjects.  By their placement and size he assigns personalities to these transposed objects which now seem to convey sentiment not to be overlooked.

    For painters of his caliber, meaning is beyond subject; beyond physical artistic creation.

    As he describes it, “The purpose of the work is to initiate an appreciation of nature’s bounty at a minimal scale; one then needs to continue from there.
