Biography

Born in 1968, it is Martin Finnin's proud boast that he has dropped out of no less than three art schools in Dublin, Limerick and Cork. He spent some time travelling before returning to Cork in the mid-1990's to resume his career.

Although there can be no question of a direct influence, his work shares certain characteristics with that of Matt Lamb. Finnin's early work was built up a relief effect, which were often 3 dimensional. Coral sand, zinc powder, powder paints, fur, quail eggs, toy soilders, even Monster Munches were all incorporated in Finnin's work.

More recent works seem to follow the same combination of complex surfaces and simple figures, but his work has been simplified to good effect making it stronger and less diffuse.

Martin Finnin Review
Sunday Business Post January 08, 2006 - Ros Drinkwater
Among the younger abstract artists, I would put Martin Finnin at the head of any list of potentially sound investments for 2006. After a successful Dublin show in the Origin Gallery in November, he was chosen for inaugural exhibition of the new London venture of the Form gallery in Cork. His paintings are best described as as celebration of the sheer sensuality of colour.
