Shade Projects presents “What Happens in Between,” the solo exhibition of Kris Manzanares in Shade Gallery at the monOrchid.

Ms. Manzanares makes her monOrchid debut showcasing her latest body of work “What Happens in Between” highlighting both paintings and sculpture.

This exhibition emphasizes, “what happens in the wild moments glinting between the familiar framework of our daily routine,” which the artist goes on to say “it’s the moments where fantasies rise unbidden from the depths, where ideas and solutions can suddenly appear, belched forth from some lively hidden inner working.”

“Many of my paintings would not be what they are without the instantaneous nature of the photograph, and its presence deserves to be acknowledged,” Ms. Manzanares said in a prepared statement. “I fuse the image and the story to tell my version of history.”

Ms. Manzaneres says her work focuses on forms of mediation that are occurring through the representation of history, amidst a culture indoctrinated wholly through mass visual mediums.

The monOrchid and Shade Projects curator, Nicole Royse, will host the opening reception from 6 to 10 p.m. First Friday, Sept. 2.

“What Happens in Between” will be on display in Shade Gallery at the monOrchid from Sept. 2 to Sept. 19.
