Title: Ship to Wreck

Signed On the Front by the Artist
Ship to Wreck is a depiction of a woman lost at sea, beautifully dressed in a feather ball gown complete with boat headpiece. Rather than having her eyes full of hope on the horizon the woman appears downtrodden, gazing downwards at the rocks while the birds soar high.
Working predominantly from photographs and magazines, Anika Manuel's subject matter focuses on people, depicting them sometimes as a form of social commentary, other times presenting them exactly as they are, for the viewer to imbue with their own ideas. Recycling imagery is important to her general concerns, as there already exist so many undervalued images which haven’t yet been fully explored.
