Michael Mancari  Artist- NYC-LA

Studio view and current state of mind. I’m already thinking about new works and how the past will inform the future. .

Still working. I’m considering reworking a few things but, for now I’ll put it aside. Next week I’m in Katmandu. .

For me, process is a means to finish a painting. It’s not like taking steps or building a house. It varies depending upon the painting. I absolutely know what I’m doing but refuse to acknowledge what everything is. If it asks questions then it might be something. If it’s too nice then it belongs on my Grandma’s wall. .

I’m not sure how many times I put paint on only to find myself scraping it off. .

It’s about control and being out of control. Like focus and being out of focus.

Things just don’t magically happen. You’ve got to make them happen.You have to say something or share something with your audience. #contemporaryart #painting #contemporarypainting #dtla #freeway #dtlaartsdistrict #cool #babytalk

A detail of a painting in progress. The squares are 6 inches. I’m not sure why they are or aren’t important. They just are... kinda like all the stuff I deal with. Back to work #contemporaryart #colour #painting #inthestudio #wip #lowerseastside #heyyou #abstractpainting #dtla #dtlaartsdistrict #boomboom

I’ve been working on the painting for over 6 months. Sure, a few things here and there have changed. Countless versions and drawings. I’m still not satisfied and still feel vulnerable for posting. My issue with many painters is the redundancy of images. I feel like many are creating the same painting with a different color. Anyway... I’m off to NYC for the weekend.

More is more and so it is. I thought I would share a work in progress. Super Junk, 2018. The figures are created from multi gender, multi race and religion, multi multi. Evolve. #contemporaryart #superjunk #color #painting #multi #wip #dontcare #abstractpainting #figure

Enjoying our first night in Amsterdam. Rembrandt house tomorrow.
