About the artist

Finlay was born in Nassau, Bahamas. He went to art school in Glasgow before joining the army. He published many different kinds of visual and concrete poems through his own magazine 'Poor. Old. Tired. Horse'. At his home in Lanarkshire, he created a garden filled with sculptural and landscape versions of his pastoral and militarist imagery. Finlay often acknowledged the influence of Kettle's Yard in his work.
