Escapism to La La Land.
Through the fascination of the humanistic act of collecting competitive awards, Finney creates abstract geometric objects of merit for a la la land where humans forget greed and power, and aim to simply be better people in a community first society. Bold and humble badges, trophies, and emblems in blocks of color speak truth in their materiality as visual reminders of lifelong achievements. Finney’s playful shapes speak across scale and construction methods.
