Jeff Mann

Auto Response

2011 Exhibit Dates
Feb 08 To Mar 04

The totality of Jeff Mann's current work is informed by what he considers to be the single greatest American icon: the car. Mann combines his environmental concerns about the car with his aesthetic interests. Mass produced parts form intricately patterned surfaces in his sculptural pieces, and tire tread patterns and road signs are the building blocks for his exuberantly colored paintings. Mann attends to his internal discord by raising awareness about the overuse of cars in society while celebrating the incredible beauty of car parts and their complexity.

Mann earned a degree in fine arts and ceramics from Syracuse University, was artist in residence at Southern Maine Community College, and has had numerous solo and group shows in the Northeast.
