Bean Finneran

Bean finneran's sculptures are minimalistic and abstract - and at the same time they remind viewers of flora and fauna: coral reefs, grassy plants, haystacks or sea anenomes - to name a few of the associations made. Although the artist does not have the objective to copy nature, her artwork nonetheless has almost natural qualities, as in the way the sculpures "grow" when being installed.

Her sculptures are made up of thousands of individually handmade and painted pieces of clay, that she refers to as "curves". Each curve is one-of-a-kind and each sculpture is unique and can never be put together in the exact same way twice. Just like nature, her sculptures are in constant fluctuation.
