Summer Mann (b. Ames, Iowa) studied art at University of Iowa, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and CalArts in Los Angeles. Mann's works detail the interplay between photographic documentation of reality and the constructed viewpoints of her painted world. Taken as a whole, these work represent the captured moments of stillness, where the corporeal world merges--in abbreviated gestures--with the spiritual. Summer Mann lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
