Signature Details: Untitled, 2020 | 22" x 26" in., Oil on Canvas, Credits: Collection of Artist
Never being one to conform to the artistic trends of the day. Paul Mane's inspirations come mostly from the past – Rembrandt, Velasquez, Goya, Cezanne, Pollock, Johns. His adept handling of oil paint allows for fluidity of style between abstraction and representation; the subject matter varies from foreshortened stacks of wood to fighter planes, to tumbling stacks of bowls and complex fields of hexagonal nets. In each artwork, the artist provides the viewer with something new, powerful, and visually engaging.
“I paint both abstractions and figurative works. I make no distinctions because what I am thinking of is space, light, and form.” Paul Manes

Dedication to Barbara Rose:
She was charming, she would charm you. She would cut your art to shreds.
She was truthful and did not hold back when it came to understanding. No false praise… she called B S. Her synthesis of information was broad, comprehensive and unique
She was complex, brilliant, forceful, vulnerable and at ease with prince or pauper. She bought many hats… and wore many hats.
Paul Manes, ‘21
“It’s not what you see, it’s how you see it.” B.R.
Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
