The show brings together a collection of Michael McManus' recent works that explore structure within the motif of a landscape. Referencing virtual spaces' use of flat, horizontal and vertical planes, there is a distinction between the more representational pieces and those that sit on the brink of an abstract pictorial space. Some are rendered to present a building or empty scene whilst others have been stripped back to reveal geometric forms and a network of overlapping marks.
McManus lives and works in London. He graduated from Wimbledon College of Art (2012) with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. He won the Prunella Clough Painting Prize and following graduation was shortlisted for Future Map (2013) and awarded the Lifeboat residency (2013) . Recently he has exhibited in UAL Showroom Space and completed the Downstairs Residency in Herefordshire.
