Findlay Galleries is pleased to announce its exclusive representation of British abstract artist Ptomley Mann in the United States and to celebrate its recent partnership with an exhibition of the artist’s works on display at Findlay Galleries, Palm Beach.
Mann graduated from her formal art studies at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art. Since 1992, she has been creating architectural and chromatic wall art for private, public and corporate clients using her technique of dyeing and hand weaving. She also creates large-format acrylic and gouache paintings on Arches paper and canvas; Mann states, “In complete contrast to the exquisite slowness of the woven artworks, these paintings are spontaneous and emotional punches of color.”
His time-consuming and unique approach to creating these works has evolved over the past twenty years. The exquisite dynamics of colors move across their fine surface, creating a painterly sweep. The term ‘chromatic minimalism’ has been applied to her work and she is heavily influenced by abstract expressionism and architecture. Mann expresses a deep sense of craftsmanship and precision through an abstract narrative.
Visit Findlay Galleries, Palm Beach, to see the unique and breathtaking work of Ptomely Mann, which exhibits complementary synergy, marrying the beauties of textural and tonal variance from muted gradients to fluorescent color fields.
