This exhibition consists of a number of oil paintings first shown as a solo exhibition at the Ranalagh Arts Centre last yeat (since added to)and made since graduating from NCAD in 2007. As shown on my web page older materials and methods are examined and used but I consider my work to be “Contemporary still life”
The paintings are backed up by a number of the objects that were uses as subjects and as such tie in very well to create a unity and completeness.
There are thirty plus paintings and four or five 3D pieces available for display, depending on the space available.
This exhibition is very accessible the paintings being mostly 40x50cm and the 3Ds about the same size, (displayed on wooden plinths, which I can supply). Costs or expenses are totally negotiable.
Exhibition available from now.
In keeping with Visual Artists Ireland’s policy we require venues or events to pay artist’s fees for exhibitions.
In recent times, we have seen a significant increase in the number of artists contacting us with stories of being expected to deliver exhibitions and other events such as talks and education programmes either for free or with just their travel expenses covered. It is obvious that this mode of practice is not only inequitable but also fails to recognise the professionalism of visual artists.
In our annual survey, we gather details of artists incomes, but we feel that it is now necessary to look at the area of exhibition and other events fees. We have based this survey on one undertaken by the American organisation W.A.G.E.
To assist us raise awareness of the current situation across Ireland, and to provide detailed statistics and figures, we ask you to complete this survey. In it we wish to get a full and accurate picture surrounding artists’ fees around Ireland.
The survey should take no more than 10 minutes. The link will open a new window. All information is anonymous and confidential. The survey will close on 21 December 2012.

This is a solo exhibition of paintings, painting installations and digital media artworks by Shane Finan.
The artworks were completed as part of an analysis of people who live on islands, during studio time and residencies in Ireland and Iceland. The central theme is the metaphor of people as islands (insulated and separated from one another), with a comparison to a metaphor of society as an archipelago.
There is no artist fee required for exhibiting these artworks – I am hoping to exhibit a debut solo exhibition and am happy to self-fund the transportation of work to an adequate space. The exhibition is unfunded, and any funding is welcome. Works made as part of this series were funded by Sligo Arts Office – this funding covered creation of work but will have to be acknowledged in any exhibition.
The works vary from small to large format, but an exhibition can be arranged in most spaces or galleries, dependent on available space. A catalogue can be designed and printed at short notice, although this would depend on the circumstances of any exhibition.
I would be delighted to exhibit these works but will not pay to exhibit in a space. All artworks are available for booking from the current date until early 2013 – some of the works will feature in exhibitions later in 2013 outside of Ireland at different dates – this can be discussed further in further correspondence. A selection of the works available can be seen at http://www.shanefinanart.org/#!archipelago-2011—/cyn3
