Manuel Neri

Manuel Neri has taken up the existential quest of the beauty of the unfinished, the unfinishable. His sculptures have extremes of surface and texture that relate to their creative birth and their succeeding stages of 'death' (and perhaps rebirth) through the artist's continued re-working of the surfaces and form.

It was in Neri's surprising and substantial body of early paintings and painted papers, figurative as well as nonfigurative, that he developed his special skills for polychromy and brushwork, which he then applied radically to sculpture, his primary sensual and public medium.

Neri's works on paper encompass almost every artistic approach, and show a broadly talented sculptor intelligently, urgently, and creatively probing color, form, materials and the nature of graphic invention.
