Bundanon

Gian Manik

Gian Manik

Art Form: Painting

Residency Year: 2022

Lives / works: Naarm, Melbourne

Gian Manik’s practice is defined by an ongoing investigation into the boundaries of representation. Previously, the artist staged reflective and malleable materials – such as tin foil – to mirror environments, which he then documents and faithfully reproduces as non-representational paintings. More recently, Manik has broadened this approach by entwining abstraction with figuration.

In residence at Bundanon

For the proposed residency Manik plans to complete the final “landscape” pillar of his upcoming major work for the Macfarlane commission opening at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) in July. The immediate surroundings from the Fern studio views will act as the subject for the work.
