Gian Manik: Umbrella - Art Collector

Courtesy: the artist and Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne

  Gian Manik’s work is highly conceptual and deeply rooted in materiality, stemming from the materials, which act as a springboard for imagined systems or structures.

Manik will present a new body of work that continues his engagement with painting images of mirrored surfaces. The works are rooted in chance, as the subjects of his paintings are dependent on what appears in the reflection. This includes abstracted images of the artist’s body, windows, walls and even other paintings in the studio. Worlds within worlds are created and manipulated, and what is produced on the canvas arrives through multifaceted pathways.
