MANO Fine Art proudly presents Deep As A River
on view through November 28, 2016.
Featuring work by: Donald McKnight, Robert McKnight, MANO. Ali Miranda, Adriano Nicot, and Purvis Young.
Soulful and provoking the exhibit â€œDeep As A Riverâ€ presents a collection of strong and at times uneven, but always intriguing works that collectively are an exultation of the human spirit. Of a life properly lived knowing as poet Jim Harrison said â€œYou touch things lightly or deeply; but you move along because life herself moves, and you canâ€™t stop it; so you go with the â€œbeing-nessâ€ of lifeâ€¦â€.
â€œDeep As A Riverâ€ revolves around the work of Purvis Young, perhaps one of the most important outsider artist of recent times. Young is best known for chronicling life in Miamiâ€™s inner city; his work remains as relevant today as it was when he started documenting the hustle and bustle of Overtown. The exhibit than extends to include a poignant collection of photography by Ali Miranda, â€œLet Sleeping Dogs Lieâ€; Adriano Nicotâ€™s blue series which while dark is not without humor; masterful figurative drawings by Donald Mcknight; powerful examples of assemblage as sculpture by Robert McKnight. Fittingly the exhibit ends with stunning mix media works by MANO that speak to our time, â€œHanging Onâ€ a nod to the United States history of immigration, and â€œFools on the Hillâ€ that may be viewed as veiled political commentary.
Special thanks to Gallery Moderne for collaborating with us to exhibit works by Purvis Young.
