The Wrestlers (Edition of 25)
Manny Woodward makes beautiful, soulful, subtle, pieces of art.
She has spent much of her working life retouching artwork and stencil-making for a leading Fine Art publisher.
It was as she became older (and wiser) that Manny made the decision to make art that was her own. This enabled her to move on from being the ‘backing singer’.
Her pieces do not rely on superficially attractive subject matter. They are more concerned with the subtle interplay of people, and their relationship to others.
Manny’s sculptures are largely of the ordinary man or woman that you might meet on the street. However these works are executed with a humanity that exudes an innate sense of beauty and integrity. Some figures stand alone; feet planted solidly on the ground, as though their intention is to stand on that spot forever.
Other pieces are of couples, bodies lightly touching, their forms merging into each other.
This most recent work is on a larger scale and in both Jesmonite and Bronze and Graphite Resin.
