Amanda Manitach: Mirrors at Winston Wächter Seattle: August 24-October 5, 2019
New works, much like the old, but rendered in mirrored and sandblasted glass.
Amanda Manitach is known for her delicate drawings, cleverly playing with popular phrases and feminine imagery. The humor in her works allow us to more comfortably consider the expectations of “proper female behavior” and the many contradictions those standards encompass. Much of her work pulls from social media and the hashtag language we have come to embrace as expressions of one’s tribe. In her latest body of work, Manitach incorporates mirrors to complete the “selfie” style of communication which has become the norm.
You Had Me At Bellevue: Ongoing
Originally commissioned by the City of Bellevue for Bellwether 2018, this large-scale text piece continues a series of site-responsive drawings inspired by regional cultural landmarks, You Had Me At (Bellevue) comprises a poetic list that invokes characteristics and signifiers of Bellevue and its surroundings.
