BALAÑA


Balanâ by Charlie Co

SLab proudly presents Balanâ, a collection of idiosyncratic charcoal drawings by Bacolod-based artist Charlie Co. The show will open on June 10 and will run until July 4, 2009.

Co moves away from his signature color and whimsy with his show Balanâ, a collection of black and white charcoal works he describes as products of a tormented imagination. A social realist and figurative expressionist, he renders his predictions of the future against a backdrop of the present realities—a global economic crisis, an impending pandemic, the erosion of religion by outdated dogma. Amongst Charlie Co's visions of the victims of power and greed, we encounter hopeful oracles, muscle men, angels and beacons. We find comfort that these familiar symbols, though dark and foreboding, will be manifest when the time comes.

Balanâ by Charlie Co opens at 6 pm on June 10, 2009 and runs until the 4th of July 2009. Co will be giving an Artist Talk on June 13 from 3-5 pm.

Balanâ will be shown alongside Inner Spaces by Briccio Santos at Silverlens Gallery and Disconnect The Dots by Bea Camacho at 20Square Gallery.
