Rebecca Manias & Heather Von
Cosmic Bodies

ARTIST STATEMENT

web 2019 04 Edge flyer Von Steinhagen Manias

Living in the Yukon, it is easy to become whisked away in the supernatural effects of the setting sun’s colours amongst the moving landscapes. In Cosmic Bodies, we emphasize the imagined possibilities of parallel sceneries.
We use installations, paintings and drawings to define the extraterrestrial limits and beyond. We are exploring the possibilities of inviting extraterrestrials into familiar landscapes and supernatural terrestrials into unfamiliar landscapes. Playing with symbolisms we impose the art observer to seek meanings and interpretation, revealing wonders of this exploratory and fun artistic practice.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Rebecca Manias and Heather Von are two cosmic cats that came from another time and place (if you look closely, you can see that they each have a third eye). They are here on this planet, in this reality, expressing all the celestial wonders they have experienced through what is referred to as art.
