100 paintings, the new publication by the LA based artist Michael Manning, features a selection of 100 digital drawings selected from four distinct series of paintings.

The use of this medium started with Manning’s regular contribution to phone-arts.net, a website dedicated to art made with smartphones, then continuously explored through many software’s possibilities, thanks to Microsoft 8 operating system and its touchscreen interface, together with FreshPaint, a finger painting app. The book features an essay by Brian Droitcour on the mobile practice of the Microsoft Painting series, a contribution by Gene McHugh, who summarizes the influence of Southern California sun on Manning’s palette, and the Amphibious Materiality essay, by Peter Amdam where he describes the gooeyness in Wild Fusion gestural affectivity. Finally, as Manning says in conversation with Lucy Chinen: “It’s like coconut bath wash, sandy hair, palm tree sunset vaped out pelican art lol”.
