Dashiell Manley | New Work (Online)

March 26 - April 5, 2020

Los Angeles-based artist Dashiell Manley’s (b.1983) practice is often characterized by its focused, repetitive and labor-intensive nature as the artist’s painting process is driven by an increasingly meditative yet emotional approach in recent years. Cultivating idiosyncratic techniques that are intertwined with East-Asian traditions of mindfulness, Manley manifests his psychological states in awe-inspiring and meditative, chaotic yet still paintings. The artist draws on his emotional responses to current events and 21st century socio-political realities as he painstakingly labors to build compositions in a process akin to Zen Buddhist practices.
