This exhibition features a variety of new works by the artist, reflecting the progress of her decades-long career. Jane Manus has been continuously developing her oeuvre of forceful geometric sculptures since the 1970s, when as a young, female artist at the Art Institute of Boston she learned to weld metal into sculpture, an experience Manus describes as a breakthrough in her artistic career.  Manus’ work has indeed evolved, and today she works exclusively in aluminum.  Her vibrant sculptures seamlessly integrate disparate elements of geometry, thereby truly transforming the spaces that they inhabit. Dynamic shapes and massive forms penetrate the viewer’s space, and seem to move and change in appearance due to their extreme three- dimensionality. Abstract though they are, Manus’ sculptures also retain an unyielding expressive character that gives each work a life and spirit of its own.
