Seeking inspiration from metaphysics and mysticism, Melissa Manfull creates hyper-detailed structures that straddle the worlds of reality and imagination. Working in a palette that ranges from the subdued and earthy to the mystical and otherworldly, Manfull inserts her stiff geometric shapes within pools of bleeding ink. Thus bringing to mind the idea of a building's lost limb, detached and floating in space. The artist's interest in utopian societies and the ways in which architecture can reflect belief systems inspired these organic yet repetitive drawings.
