deanna mance

Lines can lure and persuade you to follow their lead. They captivate through rhythmic movements and provoke you through their sense of grace. Deanna Mance is drawn to the fluidity and sincerity of the organic line and the pervasiveness of geometry in nature. Incorporating natural and mechanical formations, her artwork explores the interplay of the conscious and unconscious and the relationship between nature and human experience. Mance uses freehand techniques and spontaneous mark making as a tool that allows the work to build and grow without the restrictions of self awareness or premeditation. Through this approach, Mance embraces the unpredictable qualities and uncertain outcomes of her work. The aesthetic of her artwork reflects her interests in the passage of time, overlooked details in the everyday, and her compulsion towards repetition. Part of Mance's practice includes salvaging found materials that either become integrated within the art making or collected as a source of inspiration. Mance is creatively fueled by the constraints of limited materials and the act of improvisation throughout her process.
