Longtime Athens resident Deonna Mann was best known in the 1990s for her experimental performances with local bands like Medaglia D'oro Orchestra, Jugg Rock and Very Nice. After living the past 11 years in Brooklyn, NY, the multi-talented painter, performance artist and MC is back in town and hosting her first solo show since her return. Her new series of spray-paint stencil designs are characteristic of Mann’s art: overtly suggestive and wildly saturated with bright colors. Repurposed symbols of the ‘60s like the Playboy Bunny and the Wall Street businessman tell a story of consumer culture and the male gaze.
