The work of Ana Manso is ingrained deeply in the medium of painting, making the canvas or raw wall surface a place of encounter between the real world and the imaginary. Free of structure, order, and rationale, Manso uses the language of abstraction and color, where the resemblance of forms, driven by chance, is coincidental and uninviting to interpretation, favoring instead a sense of spirituality and mystery.
Ana Manso has exhibited work at Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto; FUTURA Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague; and the Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art, Luxembourg City, among others.
