Kylie Manning
Kylie Manning deals with the tradition of gesture as filtered through the lense of contemporary German painting. An abstract figurative painter, her canvasses reveal a hybrid of influences pertaining to being born in Alaska and raised half in Mexico. Having seen the cost of “progress”, compositions investigate disintegrated, dystopian landscapes that vibrate between refined and wild. With an acute focus towards light and brushwork, Manning examines conceptually figurative narratives that toy with traditionally gendered “masterpieces”.
