LA Artcore is pleased to present an exhibition of new assemblages by Bay-Area artist James Patrick Finnegan. Finnegan who combines drawing and sculpture utilize disparate imagery and materials to thrust into being, an explosion of ideas and concepts. Thematically, the artist explores the process of sculpture with its basis in drawing where sculptural ideas originate. Finnegan reveals the process between the conception of an idea and its journey to material form. The artist also expresses an awkwardness between man and machine, juxtaposing organic forms with those that are man-made. For Finnegan, questioning and experimenting with combining different representational and abstract ideas and forms is essential to his practice. The "what if?" of combining of disparate forms, imagery , and structures to generate nuanced meaning fuels Finnegan's creative life. 

James Patrick Finnegan is a visual artist living in the SF Bay Area. He teaches art and design at Diablo Valley College and has taught at UC Davis and Berkeley. His most recent exhibitions have been at the Metropolitan Museum, Tokyo and Little Big Space, Albany, CA. Upcoming exhibitions include B. Sakata Garo in Sacramento and The National Fine Arts Academy, Havana, Cuba
