Sargy Mann Archive
Throughout his life Sargy Mann (1937- 2015) had a fascination with the nature of visual perception and a desire to make paintings that could communicate his experience of the world.
This website has been established by the estate of Sargy Mann with the intention of creating an archive of his paintings and drawings and also of his writing and research on painting (notably the work of Pierre Bonnard) and visual perception.
In an essay, Shared Experience (1996) he wrote this description of the kind of painting he was interested in, “It can give the viewer what he would not see were he in the place of the artist. It can give him something essentially and qualitatively different from that, something he could never experience except through the medium of that particular painting. It can give him what the artist saw or imagined. This, I believe was what John Betjeman was getting at when he once said to me, “art is shared experience.” ”
We are happy to facilitate research into Sargy Mann’s work or the use of his own research into projects where it could be valuable.
