Jeff Mann

My art centers around sculpture created from car parts and painting based on car generated patterns. My work responds to these pieces and is more of heart than mind, more dance than dirge. Car parts have an intrinsic dance to me that I want to respond to without intellectual or narrative limitations. I am not simply using any found objects; I use car parts because I believe the car is the largely subliminal shaper of our world, and our cultural informer.


My approach to art in general is intuitive and expressionistic. I aspire to the directness of children’s art with the sensibilities of an adult. My medium is mostly car parts and car related patterns. While primarily a sculptor, I have begun using car parts and tires to print and through this medium have begun to more closely align my work with my message–we need to plan for a world with far fewer cars in it.
