About Steven Mark Finley Jr.
I work out of an artist collective & gallery space, Ground Floor Contemporary, located in the heart of Downtown, Birmingham. My practice has shifted & the narratives have become more personal, & retrospective. Looking within, this new body of work has become a search for my shadow self, the voices in our head’s we’re conditioned to shut down in early age. I am aspiring to have thirteen works out of this body, all works will be the same scale & self portraiture. It is important that we constantly check in with our spirits & make sure we stay in a high frequency. Watching the news has become detrimental, & already being a highly superstitious & metaphysics guru, turning to meditation, walks in nature, & divination practices such as cartomancy have become more than important to me in these times of uncertainty. May we all continue to be blessed and fruitful.
