Ethan Mañach __Old is New
opening reception: saturday, october 12, 6–8pm
Ethan Mañach delves into the relationships between shapes and lines creating contemplative and meditative works. Using geometric shapes and a limited color palette, he creates boundaries to explore space, time and surface.
A self taught artist Mañach began painting in 1997 while studying Culinary Arts in San Francisco. Mañach is a native Cape Codder who has spent many years traveling and living in other places, such as Argentina, Montreal, Spain, Czech Republic and countless trips back and forth across the United States. After each trip Mañach would return to the Cape. Each trip giving him the inspiration to create.
Mañach works with oils, inks, and varnishes creating numerous layers of texture, and depth with minimal lines. There is a an inherent primalness to his work and curiosity in the process. Mañach experiments with materials while giving them structure to play in. Old is New exhibition is his latest body of work.
Ethan Mañach lives and works in Wellfleet. He is one of the founding members of Helltown Workshop, a local artist run collective.
