|A Contemporary Realist exhibiting since 1985, Manning works predominately from life in acrylics.
Settling in the Huon in 2000, Manning’s work records and comments on her experience of the world. Recent series include: ‘Doing Time, Oatlands Gaol Residency’; the passage of time and attitudes to the history encapsulated in old buildings: ‘Nesting Series’; the transience of life and the commercialisation of our homes. In 2022 her next solo exhibition in Hobart will explore and celebrate the Huon’s apple industry.
Fascinated by the changing light and seasons, these paintings are studies of the view from the artist’s home in the Valley.
With thirty three solo exhibitions, Manning has won and been a finalist in numerous Art Prizes including Waverly, Wynne, Portia Greach, Mosman, Eutick in NSW, Waterhouse SA, Alice NT, Glover TAS and a recipient of an Australia Council New Work Established Grant.
STUDIO WATERLOOO is open by appointment.
