Anonymous asked: Hi Manny, I have seen that many people are asking you about the idea of order and disorder, which I am doing too for my idea and i would like your advice on if i should choose you as my inspiration artist as I'm doing the idea of masks, different emotions and that people have an outer shell and don't show their inner person. So what do you bass your ideas on with people? Would be so grateful for your reply and help thank you!
Well choosing me is 100% your choice [~but I’d be honored~]
And using the idea of outer shells vs actual really ties into my Embroidered metropolis series and how depression creates/is seen as a mask that covers people. (or robotic take over, however you choose to read it)
Most of my ideas on people [in my work] are sometimes based on that idea that depression/darker emotions, cover up the person. (simliar to a mask).
I hope that’s helpful. ^ ^
Anonymous asked: Hey, Manny firstly i love your work it's just awesome ,hope you don't mind answering a few question. How would you decribe what you do in your art pieces ? Also would you say you art work are Ordered or Disored or even perhaps a bit of both? -Shammila
I need to work on how to describe my art, overall I’d describe my art as magical/whimsical , but having deeper meanings relating to depression and other dark emotions of the sort.
I’d have to say my art is ordered, considering my processes are usually very orderly, although my concepts are rather disordered.
(not too sure bout that one).

I’m not entirely sure actually.

You’re very welcome.
Anonymous asked: Hello, I am a student currently doing my Art GCSE and our exam topic is 'Order and Disorder'. I am going to study your work, particularly the photography as in my final piece I would like to do something splicing people and paintings of spacey stuff like nebulae and galaxies together. Do you have any comments on order/disorder in your work that I could use in my critical study? I am a big fan of your work and it would really help me if I could have your personal opinion. Thanks, from Lucienne
I’m not sure if I fully understand what you’re asking, but in my work I usually use vertical and horizontal lines, circles, and black and white/monotone images to represent order, while diagonals, curves, and colors (constrasting colors, hot vs. cold) are used for disorder.
(Sometimes all linears represent an order of sorts, like in Embroidered Metropolis)
[Hope this answers your question]
Thank you ^ ^
