Peter Manion | Unconsciously Conscious | Works on Paper Exhibiting September 5 - 24, 2014
The unconsciously conscious is acting instinctively to something, such as driving and not remembering a moment of it. It happens because we trust ourselves and that we know we will instinctively react to obstacles in our path. "These pieces are just that; I am reacting because I am trusting myself more."
~ Peter Manion
Peter Manion - September 2013 (BELOW)
The exhibit titled "All the Art on the Floor" was held in September 2013.
Peter Manion is a native Saint Louisan who returned in 2000 after studying and living in Chicago and Louisville, KY. Though he completed his studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Peter spent nearly 8 years away from the art world. For the past three years, however, he has returned to his studio and to painting, making and showing his work continuously. Focused on the idea and the process of making a work of art, Peter's work has been evolving, challenging both him and his audience. Using an assortment of tools, techniques, and mediums, his paintings contain subtle abstract details and images built around a central form that frequently demands of the viewer to ask how is that done?
