“Manifest Gallery currently has three individual shows in its three separate
galleries < Arthur Brum, Ivan Fortushniak and Billy Renkl. The outstanding
one of the bunch < a marvel, really < is Renkl's Plan for a Garden show of
recent works. These fabulous collages have been painstakingly constructed
(resurrected, in a way) from such source material as old books and maps. The
artist, based in Tennessee, has built new imagery, and new meaning, from the
old in a way that makes you realize the ongoing potential for beauty in
everything human-made that has ever been discarded or forgotten."
