Holly Manneck’s contemporary Pop Art merges the seminal styles of Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein with a unique approach to layering sources and a more personal level of expression. She mines popular culture, combining and recombining elements from our past and present to create a captivating body of work. From historic faces of the silver screen to Tootsie Roll® Pops and popcorn to social media, Manneck develops new and unexpected visual relationships. Her playful approach injects humor, and with each montage of iconic images, advertisements and objects, a new story emerges. For Manneck, the density and sometimes unexpected nature of the combined images speak to the complexity of everyday life, and the constant layering of stories, experiences, and memories that we experience.
