    About The Work

    For the last several years, Mann has worked on his painting series O Uncolored People. These center on closely cropped and blurry images of vacationers lounging around pools. Sunburnt, and unaware, the figures are white, middle class relics of a bygone era. They are culled from vintage promotional postcards depicting the heyday of American holiday resorts and tourist attractions, from the mid-1950s to the 70s. They reflect a time when Americans were most comfortable visiting domestic resorts and attractions. However, the trend faded into the past long ago.
