Says Finke, "David Finn's photos reveal aspects of my work that even I was unaware of when I made them. His camera, his unique eye, has searched and discovered, has led the way, illuminating details and nuances." Finke's sculptures, primarily of women, are both calm and tortured; heroic and sympathetic. Their roughly textured surfaces give them power beyond their solitary poses, as they stand, sit, recline, crouch and twist, all the while seemingly immersed in their own thoughts. Even her most static figures are brought to life by the Finke's skillful understanding of the intricacies of subtle movement in the human body."--Publisher's website."@en ;
