SOUL QUARANTINE


Haven’t there been times in our lives when we felt that we were travelling Life’s long, winding and sometimes dark road alone? What we perceive as existence or essence leaves us wondering when this dark cloud of gloom shall lift. Emerging as a twentieth century movement, Existentialism focuses on the question of the meaning of a concrete human existence and the conditions of his existence rather than positing a pre-established essence to his being.

With a keenness of magis and a maroon temperament in progress, Louie Talents focuses on the limits of responsibility that one must bear as a result of his freedom and free will to choose from the many options life makes available to him. A personal experience with life’s cruel lashings as a result of his own individual choice led the artist to realize that there is no such thing as “absolute freedom. This artist’s paintings are a perfect square diptych artwork that resonates of a profound personal journey from the clutches of darkness to the freedom of light.

Leo Velasco, on the other hand, renders on canvass the heavy anxiety of his solitary travel through another of Life’s proverbial rough roads. When asked why his paintings bring forth a distinct feeling of anguish in every stroke, he simply says, “My journey towards self-awareness and my personal struggle stokes my intense passion to translate on canvass my own interpretation of Life’s realities. My paintings are my stories, they may not be about fairies and flowers, but they are about Life, my life. What is art, after all, if not a mirror of life?”

Despair is a profound concept that underlies the works of JR dela Rama. The embodiment of an artist on a protracted personal struggle, this artist found his haven in the free world of art. Recognized for his distinctive style, JR is no different from a thinking artist, but in the final days of his art production, he revealed his creations as a reflection of his unique personality and style.

These three emerging talents wish to believe that as artists converging from UP Diliman College of Fine Arts, the existential attitudes of disorientation and confusion is forever immortalized by their characteristic brushstrokes and nifty use of colors. This three-man show entitled “Soul Quarantine” is a conceptual palette transferred into the canvass and is a reflection of the artists’ soul.

Opens on May 26, 2009, 6pm at Paseo Gallery-Megamall, 4th Level, Building A, SM Megamall Mandaluyong City, Philippines. For enquiries, please call (632)706-5514, or email us: paseogallery@yahoo.com or visit www.paseogallery.com. Exhibit runs until 8 June 2009.
