The collection, carefully selected by Cesar Villalon Jr., is from the Drawing Room – one of the most prolific art spaces in Manila. Photos of the artwork can be seen on the website and all pieces are for sale. A couple have already been sold to both Filipino and Western art collectors.
According to exhibition co-ordinator Martin Clist, Philippine art is being recognised as an ’emerging market’ which should raise hopes of developing artists who have something to contribute to the Philippine arts – both at home and abroad.
There are works by Alfredo Alquilizan, Kawayan de Guia and Jose Legaspi who make up 4 out of the 11 artists featured. Paintings, 3D sculpted models and an exciting steel installation by Lirio Salvador (artwork-turned-instrument!) make up this inspiring collection. Please refer to the catalogue, and come along to the gallery! Not to be missed.
