Dashiell Manley Biography

Los Angeles-based artist Dashiell Manley (b.1983) explores the intersection of film, painting, sculpture, installation, and the digital domain, creating multi-dimensional works that defy easy classification. His short, looped films conflate elements of handmade dioramas, double-sided paintings, and stop-motion animations, while his staged double-sided paintings, leaned against walls or metal structures, disrupt our understanding and reading of them as discrete objects. Much of Manley’s work is a meditation on time—its passage, our perception of it, and its influence on narrative structure. Embracing the concept of the remix, his work functions much like that of language itself, inviting multiple readings and interpretations.
