The artist thanks these organizations for their research support:


Erin Finley is a Toronto-based feminist artist whose drawings feature outlandish, imaginary narratives. The provenance of her linework is the lithography of Honore Daumier though any sense of Victorian restraint is more than offset by the use of kamikaze subject matter and a measure of hyperbole normally reserved for Looney Tunes celluloid.  

Finley's drawings have been exhibited at Hallwalls (Buffalo, NY),     Paul Petro (Toronto), Arc Gallery (Chicago), Allegheny College (Pennsylvania), Idaho State University (ID), CBGB's (NY), Eastern New Mexico University (NM), La Porte Peinte Centre Pour Les Arts (Burgundy, FR), Femina Potens (San Francisco, CA), Siena Art Institute (Siena, Italy), Queen's University (Kingston, ON), École Polytechnique (Paris, FR) and Karat Artspace (Cologne, Germany).     In 2012, she collaborated with Heather Saunders to produce Opera Yoko, a performance held at Yoko Ono's alma mater, Sarah Lawrence College (Bronxville, NY). Finley has received grant support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Université du Québec a Montréal, and the University of Calgary, where she obtained an MFA     in 2004. She has lectured on her work at the University of Buffalo (SUNY), University of Toronto, University of British Columbia, University of Western Ontario, University of Ottawa, Brock University, Ryerson University, York University and Montreal's McCord Museum. Erin Finley teaches drawing at OCAD University.
