"Probing ancient views of the Goddess is instructive. It shows a female figure almost always more powerful than the male. Not only is she his Mother, the author of his being; she is also the deity who infuses all creation with the vital blood of life. Gods prosper only when they partake of her wisdom or adopt her powers, until they commit the ultimate hubris, symbolic matricide, by setting up an all-masculine theology." *

Manya Drobnack paintings in Rainier Tower Mezzanine, Spring Quarter
Abstract painter Manya Drobnack will show a group of three large diptychs in the new exhibition space in the mezzanine of Rainier Tower lobby, 1301 5th Avenue, for the months of April, May and June. A reception for the artist will be held on First Thursday, April 1st during the lunch hour, from 11 AM to 2 PM.
Manya Drobnack is a Mercer Island resident who hails from an interesting European background: her grandmother was a Russian artist who studied at the Imperial School of Art in St. Petersburg at the turn of the century. With this interesting heritage, Ms. Drobnack has been exposed to the work of many early European abstractionists. To that influence is added her experience of living abroad for many years in Indonesia, Hong Kong, South Africa and Australia.
Her paintings, ranging from 24"x18" to 72"x48", combine elements of Color-Field painting with organic patterns and plankton-like forms that feel like happy, self contained playground worlds. And though her paintings emit a care-freejoie de vivre, her serious side has kept her hard at work in workshops and classes with respected artists including New York legend Al Loving, Mark Takamichi Miller, and Maxi Power. Ms. Drobnack's work continues as an arts administrator: board member for Pratt Fine Arts Center, where she is current President and in the past serving also on the Board of Pilchuck Glass School.
