You are cordially invited to my upcoming solo show in Rome. Below is a roughly translated English version originally written in Italian by the curator Susanna Gargiulo Stierli. The link to the Comunicato Stampa which follows my butchered translation is the Italian version which is totally tender.
Very Sincerely, Finley 


Christine Finley  

Curated by Susanna Gargiulo Stierli

Fragments Galleria D'Arte Via Paola 23 - Rome

OPENING HOURS 6 June 2012 19:00

The American artist Christine Finley, would like to dedicate this show to her friend and patron Attilio Vaccari.
What is striking when you are surrounded by turbines
of color dancing on canvases, is the intense sensuality and freshness
released from the images, characterized by a vibrant mix of colors
reaching into the soul of the viewer. The geometric shapes, always different from each other, break up and reconnect the figures as in a traditional patchwork quilting, a sort of kaleidoscope that mesmerizes and captures and projects an
unexpected metaphysical dimension. Representations are marked by a
dynamism and thrilling lyricism, these geometric paintings stimulate
superficial sensory experience and at the same time create an existential depth. C. Finley throws the viewer into a sunny vortex and  touches the strings of interiority.
During the exhibition there will be videos that document the
works by the artist.
