With this exhibition, Finley seems to turn away from the carnival-esque insouciance of his past work, moving toward social engagement and thoughtful satire. While the installation is bright and inviting, there's an underlying gravitas, an awareness of the anxieties that attend middle age -- the urgent whispers of unexplored ideas; remonstrations over wasted time; fist-shaking at the powers that be. In short, the artist is growing up. Luckily for us, he hasn't shaken the curiosity and humor with which he approaches the world.
