About the Artist:

Kylie Manning (b. 1983, Juneau, Alaska) is a Brooklyn-based artist and a graduate of Mount Holyoke College with a double Major in Philosophy and Visual Arts. While earning a Masters degree from the New York Academy of Art, Manning was sent to Leipzig, Germany by Eileen Guggenheim to exhibit and study alongside the New Leipzig School. Her training in Germany exposed her to the New Leipzig School’s version of Surrealism whose narratives she toys with in her own paintings. Using pure pigments dispersed with safflower and walnut oil, Manning creates a whirlwind of thinly layered oil sketches using a variety of traditional techniques. Manning imbues her compositions with a contemporary feminist sense of humor, re-contextualizing the macabre aftermath of traditionally gendered “masterpieces.” Her work is held in various public collections worldwide including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, Yuz Museum, Shanghai; X Museum, Beijing; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
