This image, which shows a police barricade in Jerusalem, depicts three figures whose faces and torsos are obscured by Mann's signature degradation of the image using bleach and varnish. Enclosed within a bubble of broken color, the photograph offers the viewer a sense of place, but betrays little else about the scene depicted. It highlights Mann's interest in challenging the photograph's ability to perfectly capture a memory.Read Less

Best known for appropriating images of strife and conflict from various photo-sharing websites such as Flickr and transforming them into obscured, abstract compositions using bleach and varnish, Curtis Mann's finished works resemble the remnants of explosions—the type of thing that you'd find lying in the ashes of a great conflagration.

Recently named an "Editor's Pick" by Saatchi Magazine Online, Mann is an emerging artist who continues to gain recognition in the art world. On July 24, 2011, his work was featured on the front page of The New York Times Magazine.
