From Edward Povey - "Finnemore's art has a quality which has generally deserted the world. During the brutalizing process of the 20th Century art lost its warmth and sensuality - inevitably perhaps, as the inherent integrity of the artist rightly reflected a disenchantment with authority, and a loss of faith. Ironically the 'honesty' of Post-modernism turned its back on the full-hearted commitment of previous eras in art, and replaced it with a chilly cerebral reflection of humanity. For those with the eye to see it, Finnemore's paintings and drawings carry a solidity and a visceral contentedness, along with a modesty which is rare now - at a time when artists seem so preoccupied with the mission of amazing society."
