    A Shadow of Ophelia 2019

    Señor Zorro is an artist. He said this work made him think of Sir John Everett Millais’s Pre-Raphaelite painting of Ophelia. Who am I to argue with feedback like that.

    A Shadow of Ophelia 2019

    Señor Zorro is an artist. He paints portraits in pixels of light, capturing the true colour of his subjects through the lens of his camera. He loves what he does and you feel that passion when he talks about his experiences taking photos and how he gets lost in the process.

    When I showed him this work it didn’t have a title. He said it made him think of Sir John Everett Millais’s Pre-Raphaelite painting of Ophelia. Who am I to argue with feedback like that.

    I’d like to have this

      Monkey-47 (2019)

      My utopia would be me, alone, with maybe some pets, on the set of Logan’s run, sat drinking my favourite gin ( monkey 47) and tonic with lots of ice and a slice of grapefruit in the glass. Cheers!

      Monkey-47 (2019)

      I have always been able to visualise myself living on the set of the 1976 film, Logan’s Run. I’m not a fan of the films plot because everyone over the age of 30 is culled and that is a monstrous dystopian idea. However, my dislike of the storyline bypasses any genocide outrage and actually stems from knowing that I simply wouldn’t cope very well being surrounded by all those unbearably full of themselves, idealistic twenty-somethings. I was such a pain in my own ass at that age, that the thought of reliving it or watching others live it, makes me nauseous.

        A Foolish Consistency is the Hobgoblin of Little Minds (2019)

        I remember staring at her, my critic, trying to feel shame, anger or maybe guilt but none came. Instead, I felt my fool smile to itself. It had no regrets because it was a creature of no apology. So I mentally digested her words and shrugged, grateful that my fool was the reason why I was an artist and why over the years I had developed a very thick skin.

        A Foolish Consistency is the Hobgoblin of Little Minds (2019)

        She likened me to a fool, not once but twice. And maybe I was. I had more debt than I had money, I shut up more than I spoke out and I was easily distracted and lazy by nature.

          Muse (2019)

          I really love this piece. I think it’s good. But my muse hates it because she’s in it. Should I apologise? Nah...I’m too old and selfish to care what anyone else thinks. I mean who has time for that! And anyway it’s too late to change it now cos the glue is already dry.

            Samhain (2019)

            It was a place where an ancient tree grew surrounded by the offerings from those in search of a cure for their woes and protection from their foes.

            Samhain (2019)

            It was a place where an ancient tree grew surrounded by the offerings from those in search of a cure for their woes and protection from their foes.

            I drove a single toxic copper coin into its bark, a ritual to ask the universe to absorb all of my disease and to provide a solution to the what ifs and why nots of my existence.
            I’m still waiting.

            Eyes (2019)

            This work captures those moments, where the freedom of finding the unexpected and unusual around the next corner or through the next door is not questioned, and accepted as normal by the child.

            Eyes by Kate Finn Art

            Eyes (2019)

            As a child I spent many hours exploring the nooks and crannies of theatres, art centres and sports centres. I often used the ruse of needing the toilet or water in order to lose the accompanying adult or older child.
            This work captures those moments, where the freedom of finding the unexpected and unusual around the next corner or through the next door is not questioned, and accepted as normal by the child.
            When I look back at these experiences as the adult me, I realise I saw many things that were not what they seemed.
