Spectra

Coloured Fluorescent tubes, oscillating fans, wires, wood, cables.

The ‘Spectra’ series reveals Manning’s interest in digital colour mixing – red/green/blue (RGB) – rather than in the colours achieved through traditional painting pigments. Physics is at play where colour ratios change as the suspended lights move in proximity with each other. Manning’s series collaborates with museum surfaces to create enveloping images or paintings with light that envelop the viewer.
