Biography

Chris Finley's sculptures and installations often solicit viewers to perform prescriptive rituals that unearth hidden layers of narrative content within stacks and groupings of everyday objects. His paintings of disfigured and distorted portraits of world record holders, politicians and celebrity entrepreneurs paradoxically recall the Futurists’ glorification of speed and technology while ultimately critiquing our current mediated experience. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The LA County Museum, MOCA and SFMOMA.
