About Me:
.
Shona Finlay
Born 1979 Kirkcaldy, Scotland.
Studied Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone,Dundee University graduated 2003..

My aim is to create an atmospheric painting using brush-marks that have a presence and immediacy that captures the emotive vitality of the subject.
Vulnerability in the outer and inner beauty and ugliness of humanity in the space we live in is something that fascinates me and continues to put fuel to the fire of my passion for painting. I mainly paint women as l find them to be a versatile subject matter when it comes to painting.

Inspirations:Alice Neel, Marlene Dumas, Lucien Freud, Max Beckman, Francis Bacon, Willem de Kooning, Cindy Sherman, Tracey Emin, Robert Motherwell, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louise Bourgeois, Alexander Guy, Frank Auerbach, Gary Hume,...
