SUBTLE INDISCRETION


Subtle Indiscretion

We cordially invite you to view Subtle Indiscretion which opens on Saturday 22 August 2009 at 6:00 pm at the ARTIS CORPUS GALLERY, 303 Haig Street, Bagong Silang, Mandaluyong City. This show of paintings runs till 14 September 2009.

Subtle Indiscretion is an invitational group exhibition led by the following visual artists: Aileen Lanuza, Camille De La Rosa, Thomas Daquioag, Vincent De Pio, and Welbart.

Joining them are Abi Dionisio, Averil Paras, Don Artificio, Kris Jan Gavino, Martin De Mesa, Rafael Louis Gonzalez, Raphael Daniel David, Rinne Abrugena, and Robert Shook.

Subtle Indiscretion is within its own context a contradiction not only in semantics but in personal attitude and behavior. Subtlety is synonymous with discretion. But when delicate skill and cleverness is mated with absence of careful study and good judgment, the offspring is a terrible mutant. Fine distinction crossed with wanton abandon results in that which we refer to as guilt, that which we call sin.

This exhibition was initially entitled Forbidden Love, conceived by a group of visual artists in March 2009. This rather strange group show stemmed from an initial concept floating around prohibition. Nothing more than senseless taboos imposed by a society characterized by self-righteousness and hypocrisy are legislations which themselves are violations of Universal Law. Yet we all know that Nature must always reign supreme.

Countless trysts triggered by passion and elopements due to betrayals of integrity have been romanticized in the affairs of star-crossed lovers and clichéd during the time of gods and goddesses. Though fictionalized, they are so real even in present days. Amor interdictus is the seat of insatiable desire and incessant wanting of something that may never be gotten, of something that needs strong will and daring to attain.

In love unfulfilled resides a personal peace enjoyed only in the privacy of one’s mind: a timeless satisfaction, a blissful contentment, a silent ecstasy, a quiet orgasm. Though seemingly sensual, Buddhists chant the union of compassion and wisdom, elements that rival the affinity of oil and water. The concept of completion, with sexuality joining with spirituality, is the essence of creation. Everything is One.
