Manifest’s Artist-in-Residence program supports the practice and career of two artists each year, providing them with studio space, teaching opportunities, connection to the Cincinnati creative community, and access to our Drawing Center Studio.
The final capstone of the residency is the MAR SHOWCASE, an exhibit of the work created by our 2015/2016 residents, Marina Fridman and Samantha Haring, over the year-long residency period. This marks the culmination of their residency at Manifest which concludes in June, and serves as a celebration of their achievements, learning, and adoption into the broad Manifest "family".
Of her work, artist Marina Fridman states:
If one could step out of time and view the entire cycle of life at once, from birth until death, what would it look like? My sculptures and installations explore the cycle of decay, transformation, and rebirth. Contrasting materials transition from one to another, sometimes jarringly, other times seamlessly. Grotesque, fleshy textures and decaying found objects are overgrown with ethereal crystal formations and intangible effects of light, questioning the relationship between physical presence and ephemeral experience.
Of her work, artist Samantha Haring states:
I make quiet paintings in a noisy world. My work is an intimate meditation on humble objects and the detritus of studio life. I aim to promote a reengagement with the mundane while creating a moment of reflection for the viewer. The artist’s studio is full of memory; its history is evident in the residue layered on the walls and floor, as well as in the dusty objects scattered around the room. These remnants serve as a metaphor for the imprints people leave behind on each other and on the world. By painting forgotten corners, blank expanses, and abandoned objects, I explore the duality of absence and presence while questioning the intangibility of loss. Emptiness is an illusion. Even in silence, there is a tremendous amount of noise.
