Jose Guillermo Naval
b. 1963, Philippines
JOSE GUILLERMO NAVAL is a self-taught artist, who started exhibiting professionally in 2003. His work consists primarily of paintings, but through the years the scope of his work has come to include small sculptures, performance and installation. His latest works, exhibit a wider interest rooted in the process of art-making, particularly in how things come to be things-in-themselves, as well as other philosophical themes.
Jose Guillermo would describe his own work as experimental, in the sense that intent, accident and intrusions are of equal importance in his art-making and form the process of leading and following a thing as it becomes a thing-in-itself.
