Joey Mánlapaz

Joey Mánlapaz, a graduate of The George Washington University with MFA and BA degrees, explores glass windows of Washington storefronts in her Reflections Series of paintings, cropping the “brick and mortar” context of the buildings, to focus on the glass surface.   Interested in heightening the aggregate shapes, forms and field depths on canvas, like a camera lens, she says, “Like the mind that is filled with thoughts, sentiments and life experiences, glass surfaces are equally packed with complex and multi-layered images.  The resulting mysterious overlay of colors and forms is what I find supremely interesting – just as it is also the complex and idiosyncratic attributes of a person that make them rather fascinating!”
