 Floral motifs and elements of the landscape both resist and dissolve into abstract passages and marks.
Mann typically begins her works by pouring inks and diluted paints onto a sheet of paper. Once they have dried, the resultant rivulets and pools become a framework for further additions, including more ink work, painting, collage, and printed elements. Her use of multiple media and palpably different techniques enriches the com- plexity and the tension of her mythical worlds, an effect that is both paralleled and elevated
by elements of fracture and fragmentation that distinguish these works.
