Manny skilfully moulds and casts all her own sculptures in jesmonite or resin with graphite and bronze. The patina is then achieved by the laying on of earth pigments, overlaid with a protective varnish or wax.
Her figures vary – some stand alone, contemplative off the passage of time, feet planted solidly on the ground, whilst others display couples, with their bodies lightly touching and their forms merging into each other, some a tantalizing balance between a caress and aggression.
Through these powerful yet delicate sculptures and drawings Manny invites the viewer to take a moment, and to explore the dynamic world which surrounds each quiet pause.
Manny’s works are an expression of herself, her “own hand writing”. Her sculptures and drawings are executed with a humanity that exudes an innate sense of beauty and integrity.
