About the Item

Paul Manes was born May 4, 1948 in Austin, Texas. He began his professional career in New York City in the early 1980s. His art has been widely exhibited in America and Europe and his paintings have been acquired by many museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in Beaumont, the Tucson Museum of Art, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, and the Hyde Collection Art Museum. His work forms part of numerous private collections in the United States and Europe. Never being one to conform to the artistic trends of the day. His inspirations come mostly from the past – Rembrandt, Velasquez, Goya, Cezanne, Pollock, Johns. His adept handling of oil paint allows for fluidity of style between abstraction and representation; the subject matter varies from foreshortened stacks of wood to fighter planes, to tumbling stacks of bowls and complex fields of hexagonal nets. In each work, the artist provides the viewer with something new, powerful, and unequivocally “great.” Says Manes, “I paint both abstractions and figurative works. I make no distinctions because what I am thinking of is space, light, and form.” Manes has had an extensive career since studying at the Graduate School of Fine Arts, Hunter College (New York) in 1983. Domestically he has shown cross-country, in museums and galleries alike, including in Los Angeles, New York, Palm Beach, Atlanta, New Orleans, Beaumont, Austin, Dallas, and Houston. Internationally, Manes has exhibited in Milan, Monte Carlo, Rome, Paris, Bologna, and Munich, and most recently in Brussels, Belgium, in the epic, Painting After Postmodernism exhibition, curated by Barbara Rose. Manes’ work is frequently collected in both the public and private sectors and can be found in the collections of the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Art Museum of Southeast Texas; Yoko Ono and Emeril Lagasse. His monumental work, The Entry of Christ into New York, was most recently acquired for the lobby of the Brussels Hôtel de Ville (City Hall). 90" x 108", Oil on Canvas This Painting will be shipped directly from the artist's studio.

  • Deborah Bigeleisen - Untitled No. 30, diptych (horizontal view), Painting 2012
    By Deborah Bigeleisen
    Located in Greenwich, CT
    Collection: Multiple Perspectives Artist Statement Having started my career by painting Rembrandt-like portraits of luminous white roses, I credit my discovery of fractals for transforming my artistic vision, and changing the direction and force of my work. Always working with a single image of a flower, or a component thereof, I have stripped away the mask of the exterior form and magnified the interior thousands of times to depths beyond what is visible to the naked eye. My subject is no longer simply a flower; it is a dynamical system existing in a chaotic universe filled with energy, turbulence, mystery and beauty. Additionally, I have discovered that the system repeats itself through multiple phenomena. This is where I have taken the literal definition of fractals, and put my creative voice to the principles. Though the non-representational work may suggest a natural likeness - a wing, a wave, a shell, or even a human form - my vision invites a fresh dialogue between aesthetics and science. Whether creating evocative representational images or boldly deceptive non-objective work, my focus is always on the choreography of the movement, the organization of the space, the subtlety in the tonal transitions, and the intricacy of the brushwork. Exclusively painting...
