From the 1970s Rose Finn-Kelcey became a central figure in the
emerging communities of performance and Feminist art in the UK. The
complex thinking embodied in her work has touched on such themes as
power and the dilemmas of mastery; the myth of the artist; the
gaining of a voice; the deceptions of value; the nature of
collaboration; the surrogate performer; spirituality; longing and
death. The performance Glory (1983) was a compelling reaction to
the Falklands War, while Bureau de Change (1987) was a response to
the auction of Van Gogh's Sunflowers - a striking visual polemic
against dehumanised values as well as a complex meditation on art
and creativity. This book is the first comprehensive monograph on
the artist. It documents more than four decades of her art and
includes over 150 illustrations, as well as important essays by Guy
Brett, Sarah Kent and Michael Stanley.
