Artlimes Artist of the week

Mighty traveller moving from body to body, making no exceptions, grinning on conquest, having the shape of splendid geometrical poetry as a reminder. If Ebola had a face, it would be a shade of purple with yellow deadly ribbons and orange dots for cheeks. If Influenza had a face, it would be partly green with black connected eyes to abyss. If Yellow Fever had a face it would definitely be a mustard yellow with patches of brown, drowning into the endless blue silence each time.

The abstract art of David Manley focused on a series of related works, concerning a wide range of subjects. The "Deadly Delicious" collection reveals the beauty that results from the electron microscope, when examining serious viruses and subverts these images through oils, watercolours and drawings in charcoal. Other series are purely a photographic exploration of landscape and environmental concerns, picturing a town or village but in fact depicting the true spirit of the district.

This artist in some magical way finds the balance to rule over a chaotic world, reveals beauty from scattered patterns invisible to the naked eye, embraces poetry like an injected germ into the physical blood vain of his pieces and creates art out of bizarre notions; in his hands the fear of illnesses becomes perfection in disguise. Everything that stands on the margin of time must somehow be defined, whether it's slow music, a valley at sunset or the bittersweet ending upon leaving.

Our frames are created from high-quality wood, milled with simple clean lines and presented with a satin finish. This frame has a square profile measuring 20mm (front face) by 23mm (depth from wall). Available in black, white and brown.
