Manifest Arts Festival 2019: Launch at Rogue Open Studios

Peter Davis: Zeitgeist - Warrington Museum & Art Gallery

Manifest Arts visited Warrington Museum & Art Gallery for a brand new exhibition Zeitgeist, by the extraordinary contemporary figurative painter Peter Davis. This is a work that examines humanity and its relationship with technology through a unique collection of original paintings. Each exquisite piece acts as a social documentary that probes beneath the surface of the digital age we live in, and looks at the status of a person within contemporary society. Peter said: “Seeing people glued to their devices is so commonplace that we don’t give it a second glance these days. Maybe my series of Zeitgeist paintings will encourage visitors to the exhibition to slow down and reconsider their addiction to their own devices?” Being able to transform the often-overlooked elements of today’s society is something Peter particularly enjoys about his work, whether capturing the solitary absorption of technology addicts in isolated situations, or highlighting the paradox of the anti-social na...

Holly Rowan Hesson - Echo Installation - Pyramid Gallery, Warrington

Manifest Arts visited 'Echo' the site-specific installation by Holly Rowan Hesson at Pyramid Gallery commissioned by Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival. Echo is a new site-specific installation exploring uncertainty, transience and the gap between and interplay within purely sensory feeling and experience and more literal, rational thought-based experience and memory. The projection and sculptural work creates dialogues with materials, memory and the physical space.

Andrew Brooks talks Photography

A fascinating interview with one of the North Wests premier photographers. He discusses the type of photography he is renowned for, detailed images, often consisting of numerous photographs digitally combined. Cities, particularly Manchester and Salford have become his trademark, but he also hikes, and is just as much captivated by landscapes. His recent exhibition for Manifest combined his interest in Landscape and the detail he is known for. He goes on to describe his current interest in Instagram, and a possible new direction.

Enigmatic

Many people would describe Ruby Tingle as enigmatic. She is certainly unique, easily recognised by her style and style of dress. A combination of Edwardian/Victorian and modern, with the addition of Ruby traits, such as her love of the amphibian. Her practice is diverse, including performance, singing and visual arts. In this interview she declares it is all a collage really. As well as describing her recent performance at Chetham’s Library, she goes on to describe how her work has recently undertaken a huge transition, and its causation.
