Breath: Ann Manuel

July 18, 2024October 13, 2024

Breath - An Installation by Ann Manuel  is the end work of a series that spans two decades and utilizes multiple media. The inspiration for the series began with the last breath of her father and ended with the last wish of her mother, almost sixteen years apart. This work is a call for reflection away from the distractions and noise of our everyday lives. Using a simple organic form reminiscent of a garden flower, the work embodies a deep inhale of one's memories followed by a slow meandering exhale. For more than forty years, Ann Manuel has been working as a multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on drawing, printmaking, painting, and installation. She is originally from Corner Brook, NL, and currently lives in New Brunswick, where she maintains a full-time studio practice in Fredericton and St. Andrews.   

The exhibition is organized and curated in partnership with the New Brunswick Museum
