Press Release by Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild
The Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild is pleased to announce that guild member Manss Aval has been selected for a solo exhibit, entitled “The Nature of Things” at the Poway Center for the Performing Art.
“The Nature of Things”
The long-time fine art photographer and artist Manss Aval works and resides in San Diego, California. His vision embraces a unique perspective, capturing and transforming subtle patterns, textures or inanimate objects into living, sometime mystic figures. Faces, designs and new genetic constructs emerge to challenge our notions of the "known" and portray our environment in a more intimate, inspirational perspective. In some works striking abstracts with refreshingly bold colors transpire. His Naturescapes convey natural beauty and combine warm and sometime pastel hues in a soul soothing serenity. They reflect a sensibility largely formed by his extensive international travels.
Aval’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in Los Angeles, New York, Pasadena, San Diego, as well as Florence, Toronto, Paris and Merida. His work has been published and recognized by many national and international awards, including by ArtBuzz, Photoshoot, the William D. Cannon Art Gallery, the Athenaeum Museum, Four Points Contemporary and the 2013 Grand Prix de la Decouverte, Paris. The current Poway exhibit presents over 70 pieces of Aval’s recent work including art and fine art photography.
The "The Nature of Things" exhibit runs from October 3 to October 30, 2013 at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts, 15498 Espola Road, Poway, CA 92064.
The opening reception will take place on: October 18, 2013, 6 pm
