Beyond: Louise Manzon At Gallery 61-NYIT, New York

Sculpture exhibition by Louise Manzon
Gallery 61-New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), New York City.

Curator: Jennifer Mitchell-Nevin
From April 12th to June 3rd 2016

An event by Advantage Première Art Fund

 

The artist expands on one of her most creative themes: the archetypes of Greek mythology. Manzon’s work explores various aspects of these classic symbols, including female figures and their role as the watchful guardians of life’s secrets, sea creatures and the vitality of natural environments, as well as the perils that threaten those creatures and the hope for their preservation.

 

«Louise Manzon’s sculptures seem to come from the depths of the sea… Her figures woman-Nereid are billowing and alive…»
(from the presentation by Alain Elkann)

 

Louise Manzon was born and grew up in San Paolo, Brazil. Her formative years were spent in South America, Europe and the United States. She exhibits her sculptures in Switzerland, Italy and the United States.
