Gian Manik Biography

Gian Manik graduated from a Master of Fine Arts from Monash University in 2012 and has since shown extensively in both solo and group exhibitions across Australia. Preoccupied with the language of representation, the artist is known for producing work that keeps the viewer guessing.  Paradoxically, his large paintings are at first abstract, but represent real life imagery.

The artist elaborates: “Fundamentally, painting explores the language of representation.…  The specific aim of my practice is to investigate how painting the concept of vibration operates in representation. Visually the paintings are of the subject of the mirror, translated through fabrics or other more plastic or fluid reflective surfaces, to tackle the idea of ‘mirroring’ representation and translation of image into painting.”
