Art DisplayThe Philip S. Miller Library is delighted to bring you Gary Manuel’s sculpture exhibit entitled “Unexpected II.”
Gary’s techniques and concepts were influenced by various artists, some of whom worked in abstract and some in figurative art, while working in a co-op studio in New Orleans in the 70's. He was fortunate to have had access to many different mediums during this time, so exploration with recycled material, painted metal, fiberglass, wood construction, and metal casting took place. After 30 years of cabinetmaking and woodworking he moved to Denver and put his sculptures back in circulation. Gary uses wood and metal together. The sensual feel of the wood with the sharp lines and hard edge of the metal work to enhance the qualities of each. Sometimes an idea only calls for metal, either steel or aluminum, but almost always a sphere or circle will appear as some design element in his work.
