ABSTRACTION: LOST AND FOUND
Curated by Nilo Ilarde
TAKSU Singapore, 11 April – 2 May 2013
TAKSU Singapore is proud to present Abstraction: Lost and Found, a group exhibition featuring 7 artists from the Philippines: Nolet Soliven, Raul Rodriguez, Jigger Cruz, Juni Salvador, Ronald Achacoso, Jojo Serrano and Zean Cabangis, who straddle the tenuous boundary between abstraction and figuration.
The participating artists, both seasoned veterans and emerging luminaries in the Philippine art scene, adhere to the practice of manipulating the earthly medium of paint wherein the elements, pigments and essences become alchemical substances that transmogrify these objects into vessels of contemplative resonance. The artists strive to breathe new life into the ‘obsolete’ medium of paint but loosely incorporate elements from photography, sculpture, film, and literature as mode to navigate through the labyrinthine self-entrapment of contemporary culture.
