Biography          CV         Statement          Recent Press

Mary Finlayson paintings are a celebration of color, pattern and form which navigate themes of  home, memory, and self. Through flattened interiors, she provides viewers an intimate glimpse  into homes as memories–often a departure from reality. She invites us to consider what home  means to us, both in our past and in our idealized form.

“I like to think of interiors as portraits that contain their own narratives. I am interested in the stories that they contain and how these spaces are used to tell stories about the people who inhabit them. I’m drawn to rooms that feel personal – places with meaning full of important objects that create accidental compositions.”

Mary Finlayson’s interest in painting interior spaces portrays how environments reveal identity. Navigating the themes of intimacy, memory, and self, Finlayson’s gouache paintings reflect the vulnerable narratives unveiled through ownership of possessions. Flattening the perspective of each scene, her still lifes provide a voyeuristic glimpse in to each curated space.
