Finas Townsend III

Finas Townsend III speaks to Chris MacInnes about his Intermedia exhibition ….grabbing the gin and regretfully leaving the sauce (8 - 28 July 2017).

The exhibition was conceived as a presentation of artefacts either created or consumed by a twenty-first century painter. It aimed to explore how painting transcribes current behaviour and habits, and to ask how does an artist who continues to use a 'traditional medium' earn his contemporaneity in the first place.
