For his very first solo exhibition in London, the Irish artist and Artfinder bestseller, Fintan Whelan is exhibiting a selection of his recent work at 508 Kings Road Gallery. The value of Fintan's art doubled in the past year, making him one of the most sought after international artists.
The title of the exhibition – Synthesis – suggests both a work process and an accumulation of these creative efforts. The content of his paintings allude to his living environment in the broadest sense, where any kind of objects or any kind of sensations somehow creep into the paintings. This exhibition is an exploration of how the fragility of pictorial illusion subsists amid a world of contingencies. In a contemporary visual culture in which images flood and overwhelm us, Whelan's aim is to re-establish our sense of images as elusive, mysterious and hard-won.
Selection of my latest works curated by award-winning designer Karin Verzariu will be shown at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre in London together with Britain´s finest exquisitely hand-crafted furniture from Dec 4 until Dec 21.
