Fiona Finnegan @ Domobaal
16 February 2018 - 17 March 2018
Fiona Finnegan’s images in The Frog Devoured the Sun, are simultaneously familiar and enigmatic. Searching for a feeling rather than a particular subject, she carefully erases the details which locate an image in a particular time or space and creates instead a sense of surreal timelessness; something from the past but not necessarily rooted in reality. The thin washes of colour painted on and sanded back over and over again, are covered with a thick layer of varnish. Punctuated by bubbles, the varnish echoes the Victorian window panes in Finnegan’s studio and acts as a barrier between the image and the viewer – reflecting our gaze and intensifying the mystery.
