Manning’s works-on-canvas explore interconnectivity, intuitive mark making, and metaphysical networks of energy. Through a repetitive process, multiple layers of fabric, paint and thread are created. Manning’s mandala series metaphorically address the interconnected and layered world we live in and the necessity for balance. Textiles are traditionally associated with ‘women’s work' and have a long history of telling stories of interior spaces and labor. Salvaged fabrics from clothing and domestic materials imbued with these narratives are incorporated to highlight their importance. Manning’s goal is also to bring awareness to the environmental crisis ‘fast fashion’ is creating.
