We will break this down and make it easy for everyone!</p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0in; font-weight: normal;"><strong>About Zak Mann<br /></strong>Zak Mann is a financial representative at National Planning Corporation.

By this I mean big seas and powerful subject matter benefit from energetic, physical, and confident painting which usually includes allowing the paint to have its own way. Dripping pouring, throwing, lifting, shaking, etc..add to these involuntary effects".</p> <p class="p1">Sole says he is striving to achieve a state he calls <strong><em>Involuntarylism</em></strong>, a concept in which the built up knowledge in the artist's hand is permitted to come through in an instinctive approach to the application of the materials.</p> <p class="p1"><strong><em>Involuntarylism</em></strong> is the act of allowing the paint and gravity to create the painting itself, while subject to the artist's "puppeteering" and manipulation of built up knowledge and past experience, allowing the paints characteristics to create organic patterns, atmosphere, and substantiation.</p> <p class="p3"><strong>About the Artist</strong></p> <p class="p1">Since graduating with a BA in Fine Art from Wimbledon College of Art in 2008, Michael Sole has gone on to exhibit in group and solo shows across England and France. In 2009 and 2010 he was awarded "Young Artist of the Year" by the Royal Society of Marine Artists for his work exhibited in the Mall Galleries, London. In 2013 he was awarded the 'Arts Charitable Trust Award' in the Royal Society of Marine Artists annual exhibition in London.</p> <p class="p3">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p3"><strong>The exhibition will be on view through November 1st, 2014.</strong></p> <p class="p2">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p3"><strong>Yeelen Gallery</strong> is a contemporary art space dedicated to the promotion and expression of Contemporary Urban Culture.
