'The Neighbours’ explores our interpretation of place as today’s urban scrawl, ease of travel and the line between suburban living and the bush become increasingly blurred.
Harley Manifold was born in Camperdown, Victoria in 1982. In 2003 he completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Deakin University in Warrnambool. He then went onto complete his Honours in Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne as the only non–previous student in his year. He has been included in numerous Art prizes and group exhibitions. On three occasions he has been a finalist in Australia’s richest art prize for emerging artists, The Metro Art Award, and consecutively for the previous two prizes. Also three time finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize (2015, 2017 & 2019) as well as the Salon Des Refuses of the Archibald Prize (2016).
