Finbar Prior

I am a painter and decorator concerned with unattainable surface and lifestyle. Using exotic paradise as a colour palette to question notions of taste and decor. Juxtaposing machine made objects with my own altered versions. Trying to obtain the same perfection as a mass produced product but failing. This questions the notion of escapism and the way we decorate our homes to be better people and escape from life. Referencing the Dulux colour chart and their use of exotic names highlights my interest in how interior design alludes to another place.
