KNOW YOUR ARTIST
Deanna Mance is an abstract artist whose work references the transmutation of death and rebirth, introspection of personal and ancestral history, and her relationship to spirituality and ritual. She uses freehand techniques and spontaneous mark making as a tool that allows the work to build and grow without the restrictions of self awareness or premeditation. Through this approach, she embraces the unpredictable qualities and uncertain outcomes of her work. Part of her practice includes salvaging found materials that either become integrated within the art making or collected as a source of inspiration. She’s creatively fueled by the constraints of limited materials and the act of improvisation throughout her process.
