RURAL ABSTRACTIONS


“Rural Abstractions”

Aaron Bautista mounts his tenth solo exhibitions at Verdana Art Gallery Studio with opening cocktails on June 27, 2009 6pm.located at Corinthian Gardens no. 39 Castrillo Street, Quezon City.

According to Aaron his last installment of paintings is mainly based on series of abstractions called “Fields of Gold” is a continuation of long held fascination of using gold medium and color field abstraction done in mixed media on variable sizes of canvas.

His process of gluing found objects like strips of canvas, pieces of wood, nails, sinamay, coins and other items assembling a composition on textured canvas surface then spreading/dripping it with enamel, oil paints to create a near monochromatic, predominantly of gold abstract landscape. It was gold that mostly dominates the entire composition, a field abundant with ripen wheat and ready to be harvested as in Sting slyly sings it with conviction, “you can tell the sun in his jealous sky/when we walked in the fields of gold…” and we presumed these as mountains, rice fields and lake and is another picture of small town called Angono, which deeply inspires him and where he grew up and also the late Botong took his inspirations of idyllic long gone or being urbanized. Aaron stated that “gold is a symbol of longevity, bounty and abundances. My works were spontaneous but nevertheless speaks of individuality from other artists”.

As the two panels of four by four feet “Two Giants” and “Caged Beauty” engaged us to overlook the sinuous locking of patterns and lines with interweaving black scrapping of details where primary colors set against the foreground settings make it look like an urbanized topography. With intermittent clouds that hover the upper parts of the canvases. These “oriental-look” reprimanded us of that feeling where we should stay across and stealthily experiences it’s time-being.

The series “On this Site will Rise”, the painter uses the same exuberances and make rooms for avowed metamorphosing accoutrements of post and lintel apparitions but yielding on the side and nevertheless mingles with wash and dry effects of the medium being often used and manipulated. Most drips concealed us of the posh and commercialized encroaching of his town being leased to the corporatism and franchises of advent urban planning without so much empathy for the cultural legacy. We empathize with this innuendoes and sentimentalities with these pieces and let the non-objective partaking to the process of the artist for so many reasons.

Abstract art is a responsive way of delivering us to these kinds of thought and belonging. And so much had been said of that throughout especially who had taken the course of academics in the arts. Bautista who studied at UP Fine Arts and is also a member of Neo Angono Artists Collective and Angono Ateliers Association, still trying the justification of art to its fullest embryonic self-assessments that can be receptive to spectators who in turn have been inundate with sense of fit-in resultant from common responsiveness. With this kind of abstractionism that he as an observer still does what his deliberate mind should be able to represent meanings in abstraction.

Show runs until July 25, 2009. For further inquiries please contact Ana Cornelia at (0929) 2572249 or visit http://verdanagallerystudio.multiply.com
