Peter Finnemore

Concepts
I am a photographic artist who works within a context of fine art ideas. These images evolve from an ongoing artistic investigation which began as an exploration into the notion of home, memory, story and history within a Welsh cultural context. These works explores the intimacy of a garden space as a site of performance, artistic activity, of drawing and imagination. My photographic
artwork is a construction of ideas, blending fact and fiction, history and myth, observation and manufacture.
