Seemingly logical, yet ultimately elusive are the paintings of Shannon Finley (*1974). In an interplay of geometric detail and the wholeness of the canvas, a complex tension emerges that is constantly reconstituted before the viewer's eye. His prismatic paintings are reminiscent of the technoid world of Metropolis or the rough pixels of early computer games. Canadian artist Shannon Finley has lived and worked in Berlin since 2014. Shannon's exhibition "Aftermathematics" is part of the thematic series 2023 "Between Use and Contemplation".
