Parker Manis

Born: 1984

Hometown: Columbus, GA

Based in: New York City

 

Parker Manis was born in Columbus, GA, and currently lives and works in New York as an artist and visual concept designer in retail design, furniture, and fragrance design.

The work explores the tradition of image-making and the space between the mediums of painting and photography. Using photographic materials and processes as parameters, he incorporates methods of painting into a process that produces a hybrid product of these two image-making traditions. The dyes and pigments impregnated into the photo sensitive paper create a level of depth that draws the viewer into an intimate sense of isolation. The use of emulsion corrosion serves as an impediment to the clarity of viewership, and a reminder that some things that were, are no longer, and are but remnants left from our own personal processes of trial and error throughout life.

The resulting works are exercises in the balance of personal clarity of one's self and the adjacent intangibles of self-awareness, yielding at times highly reflective moments in which the viewer can see themselves. The works serve both as an art object and a mirror acting as an ephemeral contextual placement of the individual into the work, making that experience highly personal and unique.

About Parker Manis


IconInspires

What inspires you?

Image-making of any sort, usually. The ability to, or opportunity to produce or replicate an image or visual is remarkable. The agency one has, especially through the ubiquity of current technology combined with more traditional analog methods leaves room for a constant refinement in the definition of one's intention.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

The process can be stripped down to an evolving exercise in cause and effect; but more specifically, an intentional bastardization of an existing process to determine a sense of / or answer to 'what if...'


IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

Traveling in general has been very helpful, both in metropolitan and agrarian contexts.
