15 FILIPINO ABSTRACTIONISTS AT GALERIE ANNA


Galerie Anna proudly presents the exhibition: Flash! Fifteen Filipino Abstractionists, from October 18 to November 10, 2008. This major exhibition covering Philippine Abstract practitioners from the Sixties to the present includes some of the most recognized names in Philippine Modern Art, as well as some of the most interesting and exciting Abstract practitioners of the present. They include: Ross Capili, Danilo Garcia; Andrew de Guzman, Fitz Herrera, Raul Isidro, Alfredo Liongoren, Sio Montera, J Elizalde Navarro, Eghai Roxas, Hermi Santo, Sherwin Tan, Roy Veneracion, Phillip Victor, Javy Villacin and Nestor Olarte Vinluan.

The exhibition includes such pivotal practitioners as National Artist Jeremias Elizalde Navarro, whose in-depth readings of Wassily Kandinsky and Hans Hoffmann in New York brought new life and vigor to color-field Abstraction in the 1950s; to Phillip Victor, whose indigenous location in Bulacan did not prevent him from gaining insight as a Minimalist practitioner whose ethos is still tied to the timeless intimacy of landscape. They also include the works of renowned 2nd generation artists of the 1960s and 1970s like the elegiac tropical rainfall-like strokes of former Dean of the UP College of Fine Arts, Nestor Olarte Vinluan; the calligraphic simplicity of artist Alfredo Liongoren; the elegant circular geometries of Raul Isidro; the hybrid “syncretistic abstractions” of Roy Veneracion; the mystical but exuberant coloration of Hermi Santo; the illusionistic capacities of Abstractionist Eghai Roxas; the serene hard-edged chromatic submlimations of Danilo Garcia; the diaphanous-like curtains and strokes of color by Ross Capili; or the geometric planarity-plus-expressive gesturalism of Cebu-based Abstractionist Javy Villacin.

They in turn inspire and are joined by third generation abstractionists like Pulilan, Bulacan-based colorfield artist Andrew de Guzman; Cebu-based multi-faceted Abstractionist and UP Cebu Fine Arts Professor Dennis “Sio” Montera; calligraphic artist and Zen Abstractionist Sherwin Tan; or Postmodern Abstractionist Fitz Herrera.

FLASH! Fifteen Filipino Abstractionists shall be on view at Galerie Anna, 7th floor, Ramon Magsaysay Center, Roxas Boulevard corner Dr. J. Quintos Street, Manila 1004 Philippines.
