The exhibition Dogs and Cables, by Miltos Manetas, comprises two new paintings and three Web sites, including Jesus Swimming, which has been exhibited at Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville in Paris in 2000 and the 2005 Valencia Biennial in Valencia, Spain.
Manetas is a painter of contemporary life. He paints joysticks, computers, keyboards, cables, laptops, videocassettes, shoes, dogs, and televisions. He paints people interacting with these contemporary objects in everyday activities: hands clutching a joystick, bodies relaxing beside a laptop or people stretched across the floor talking on mobile phones.
Beginning from his early work, Powerbook (1995), to the latest, Internet Paintings (2001-2005) and Girls in Nike (2005), his work is a document of the chaotic sensation of living and interacting with the physical evidence of technological development.
