Get ready to immerse yourself in a world of captivating colors, shapes, and emotions. Manna Gallery proudly presents Songs and Stories, an exhibit of abstract paintings by Irene Nelson. Nelson’s acrylic paintings and works on paper offer a unique glimpse into the ethereal landscapes of her imagination. Central to her work are biomorphic forms and captivating color relationships that compose her visual narratives. Her work presents an artful balance between the intricate layers of detail and the apparent simplicity that lies on the surface. Through her paintings, Nelson opens a doorway to untold stories, inviting us to explore her visual narratives and uncover the profound interplay between imagination and reality.

β€œIn this beautifully realized body of work Irene Nelson invites us to share in her intimate, personal, and poetic language. The work utilizes a language that is immediate, open and intuitive. It is emotionally charged while whispering truth.” -Michael David, M + David and Co., Brooklyn, NY, Painter, Educator, Curator
