#12 Tesoro corner Complex New York St.
corner Sgt. Catolos, Cubao, Quezon City

The show lauds the nameless and anonymous designers of cheaply made textiles in the market and knock-offs of quality fabrics. As the invented title suggests, the concern of the works springs from the notion of manufacture, of things being made, as it relates to the artist’s personal reflections on the current swell of artistic production in the local context.

In painting formats that allude to altarpieces, the artist as parodist, mixes fabrics with traditional media, and uses printing side by side with painting, sourcing ready-made design to connect disparate images of the past.

The artist earned his MA in Fine Art degree from the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton in the UK. He divides his time teaching as assistant professor at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, Diliman, where he obtained his BFA with magna cum laude honors in 1995. As undergraduate in 1993, he won the Art Association of the Philippines (AAP) Jurors Prize for Painting. He has also exhibited in New York, Paris and the United Kingdom, and has works in institutional collections such as the Singapore Art Museum and the UP Art Collection.

When time permits, to support further his practice, he designs, selectively for film—a previous background that earned him numerous awards, and also for theatre and the printed media. He also selectively curates exhibitions especially for young artists.

FABRICANA will be exhibited in Singapore at the Utterly Art Gallery from November 19 to 29, 2009.
