BIBLIOGRAPHY
2016 Carlos Rojas, MACA, Monte Azul Center for the Arts www.macastudios.org
The omnipresent California sunshine is often at once muted and intensified by the San Francisco fog, and its depiction can lead to formulaic conventions that may even slant towards the trite.Yet, this light permeates daily interaction with the environment and to ignore it would be to disregard the reality of life in California.


San Francisco artist, Kathleen Finney, successfully defies the cataloging of her work as landscape painting, yet it is difficult to ignore the atmospheric quality of her pieces. Her works are inhabited by glimpses of time and space, where bold edges and shapes may fade away into a multidimensional atmosphere, hinting at the passage of time and the imperfection of memory. Overall, the compositions tend to be imbued with moments of angst and melancholy amid the sunny palate, beautifully integrated and graceful, rarely abrupt, and it is this tension found within Finney’s complex imagery, which is often contradictory, that draws the viewer in for an experience with a mystery, or mysteries, that are never revealed.
