Manju Shandler
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Park Slope



ARTIST STATEMENT: I am a visual storyteller who communicates with the viewer through narrative imagery, imbued with elastic meaning. I am creating a new visual mythology that explores the process of mankind corrupting the natural world in pursuit of progress. My narrative mixed media paintings and tapestries are a meditation on current events presented as a psychological landscape that builds upon established story lines in pursuit of ordering madness in dense and complicated times. My artwork reflects on the past, while it probes the future. The blueprint of how I create work can be broken down like this: I isolate a contemporary phenomenon, find a myth or story with relevance, and illustrate their intersection, using an arsenal of imagery and techniques assembled through research and intuition. Much of my work is on polyester film, a thin translucent plastic. This material allows the staging environment to be visible through the work, breaking the metaphor of painting as a window into another dimension. I mark this surface with India ink, grease pencil, printing, acrylic and spray paint. I sew this work together creating large multi-layered plastic tapestries.
