INCITE: TAMMY TAN / MUTE SKIN: JASON MOSS


Incite: Tammy Tan / Mute Skin: Jason Moss

For the month of June, Boston Gallery offers two back-to-back solo exhibitions by visual artists Tammy Tan and Jason Moss.

On view from June 14 to July 3 at Boston’s Lower Gallery is Incite, Tammy Tan’s first one-woman exhibition of oil on canvas paintings. At the Upper Gallery is Mute Skin, a collection of recent works on acrylic on canvas by Jason Moss.

Both shows deal with the figurative, with human subjects in particular, but engaging in various levels of interrogation. Incite delves into the “cohesive elements of memory, emotion, imagination, and recognition”, as Tan asserts. Most of the images in her works, she adds, are based on dreams. While focusing on the human form as subject, the artist also explores the symbolic image of the butterfly as a motif in her works. The works explore the various social and creative metaphors associated with the butterfly. Mute Skin, meanwhile, features six of Moss’ most recent works.

Incite and Mute Skin will open simultaneously on June 14 (Saturday), 6 p.m. The shows will be on view up to the 3rd of July, 2008. For inquiries, please contact Boston Gallery, located at # 72 Boston St., Cubao, Quezon City. For inquiries, please call (632) 7229205 or write aceboston@yahoo.com.

HABITUDES


HABITUDES
A Group Exhibit




Habi Home Interiors Gallery presents HABITUDES, four-man art exhibit of small works by Andy Orencio, Victor Santos, William Antonio and JCrisanto Martinez. The exhibit is a series of wall-bound artworks in mediums of oils, acrylics, prints (serigraph), and mixed media.

The title takes on the root word “habi” signifying the venue. Literally, “habitude” implies a tendency to act in a particular way. But in the context of current terminology, “habitude” may be a coined word to describe an attitude of co-existence. Habitude may be the appropriate term to describe the continued camaraderie or “brotherhood” of this group of artists who have accustomed themselves of working together. Thus’ “habitude” may connote “co-inhabit” and “co-exhibit” Clearly, habitude fosters collaboration.

In Habitudes, Andy Orencio showcases a series of his recent oils on canvas abstractions mounted on burlap. Orencio’s series skillfully employs forms and colors in exceptional compositions. The outcome of his small masterpieces is visual poetry.

Victor Santos continues his relentless passion for old filipiniana. Adding up to his body of works are serigraph prints done in oil. The opulence of history remains reflected in Santos’ siennas, umbers and ochres.

William Antonio’s floral abstractions are a variance from the “be beautiful” concept of flowers. Rather, it evokes the vulnerability of such in the current ecological set-up. The bold palette knife strokes and vibrantly-hued corollas are suggestive to an imperative call for a positive response to environment concerns that could one day obliterate our remaining blossoms.

JCrisanto Martinez presents a series of small works entitled “Drops of Jupiter and Conscious Thought.” All achieved employing acrylics/mixed media on burlap; the works mainly demonstrate the artist’s attempt to understand and evaluate his personal internal and external world. The works have their own suggestive features that streams from the artist’s own search for significance within the sphere of abstraction.

HABITUDES opens on Friday, June 13, 2008, 6:00 pm at the Habi Home Interiors located at Unit C-235 2nd Level Shops @ Serendra, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila.

KATORSE SHORTS


KATORSE SHORTS at INDIE SINE


For too long, short films have remained the forgotten art form; a consistently underrated medium that has never been given the exposure it demands. Even with the emerging popularity of independent films in the Philippines, short films are still seen as “front acts” for full-length features or “sidebars” at local film festivals.

The Katorse Writers’ Group, a group of young writer-filmmakers who were part of Ricky Lee’s 14th Scriptwriting Workshop, addresses this problem by coming up with a full program of short films to be screened at Robinson’s Galleria Indie Sine.

On June 11-17, KATORSE SHORTS will showcase 7 short films with themes ranging from the romantic to the absurd to the tragic - a program that is meant to bring to the consciousness of Filipino audiences the short film as a form that can hold its own.

Katorseshorts line-up:

Ang Kapalaran ni Virgin Mario by Ogi Sugatan
Ambulancia by Richard Legaspi
Manyika by John Wong
Puwang by Anna Isabelle Matutina
Dead Letter by Grace Orbon
Lababo by Seymour Barros-Sanchez
Walong Linggo by Anna Isabelle Matutina
