Spotlight Artist! Chris Finley

Since blogger goes nuts every time I try to post a jpeg of my own work, today is dedicated to an artist I admire, Chris Finley.
Chris is a California native who graduated from Art Center (Pasadena). I thought his work was relevant because like my past couple posts, his paintings (like the ones below) start with an image that is abstracted or distorted through the computer and then painted. I think it's immediately apparent from the graphic integrity of his work that they are digitally inspired. It's really interesting to see how artists today are taking something "traditional" like painting and incorporating the "modern" digital aesthetic that is so popular now.
