Peter Manion: Stories of Roman Gods of War & Love

Stories of Roman Gods of War & Love
October 23 – November 28, 2020

Peter Manion’s new work, made during the quarantine, still utilizes his trademark non-traditional materials, but with a new clarity and purpose. His mark-making and drawing style are free and light, reminiscent of an artist’s sketchbook or writing journal.

The works are personal, including thoughts and feelings that he believes have universal connections. The work hunkers down to focus on the emotional aspects of art making. The “vessels” seen in many pieces symbolize the care one has for all the emotions one carries from their past into the present. Manion uses these vessels as a way to honor all those feelings but realizing we must store them away and not be a burden by denying them. In this strange time, reflection on one’s life is front and center. For Manion, he has used it he has used it to dive deeper Into the memories lost and forgotten – some painful and others beautiful.
