In association with exclusive agent, international art dealer and consultant Joanna Bird, INDUSTRY is pleased to present the work of Scottish artist and designer Geoff Mann. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2005, Mann has exhibited nationally and internationally and was most recently named a “Designer of the Future” by Newsweek magazine.
Mann’s work embraces the symbiotic relationship between digital media and physical form. His fascination with transposing the ephemeral nature of time and motion has created a studio practice that challenges the existing divides between art, craft and design. “I don’t invent things,” says Mann. “I just find a way to materialize objects from things that we can’t see.”
In 2008, Mann was awarded the World Craft Council Prize for Glass and in 2009 won the Jerwood Contemporary Makers Prize. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Cincinatti Art Museum, the Museum of Art and Design, New York, and the Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery in Norfolk, UK.
