WOMB VOX


Kaida Gallery opens Womb Vox: 9 Filipina Artists on March 14, Sunday. LJ Ablola, Yasmin Almonte, Charito Bitanga, Camille dela Rosa, Mitch Garcia, Paola Germar, Jemina, Mervy Pueblo and Jeona Zoleta display works that create visual reverberations as they dissect the layers of feminine consciousness, expressing harmony and dissonance, passion and transcendence, luminosity and darkness, and the varying gradations of life caught in between.

Nine Filipina artists provide a distinctive reflection of what is natural to them-- the essential; what they find to be their own seeds of inspiration, letting them germinate in the process of birthing visual expressions on canvas, in sculpture, and the proliferation of their chosen art objects.

Pioneering abstractionist Charito Bitanga, Dean Emeritus of the Philippine Women’s University, leads this pack with her fragile yet compelling works on glass, as UP Fine Arts professor Yasmin Almonte puts forth her female-empowered expressionist paintings. Jemina’s multihued abstracts sing in counterpoint to Camille dela Rosa’s surreal anatomical explorations and Paola Germar’s cross-sectional deviations. Mitch Garcia, installation and performance artist, extends her paintings beyond live action, as sculptor Mervy Pueblo tames stone, metal and acrylic paint to create cerebral and elemental depictions. LJ Ablola and Jeona Zoleta compare and contrast strength and disempowerment, congestion and relief in their portrayal of glaring human/woman idiosyncrasies.

It did not take nine months to induce Womb Vox: 9 Filipina Artists, but it did take nine individuals of differing art career phases to combine their talents in creating this evocative selection of artworks. Womb Vox: 9 Filipina Artists will be housed within the nurturing walls of Kaida Gallery in celebration of International Women’s Month. The viewing public may now immerse themselves in the multi-colored pulsating energies and varied brush-beats of these artists, and maybe even sense the muffled whispers of their primordial sanctuary in contemporary art.

Womb Vox: 9 Filipina Artists will be on display from March 14 to April 2, 2010. Reception starts at 5:30 pm. Kaida Gallery is located at 26 Scout Torillo St., Brgy. Sacred Heart, Quezon City. For more details, please contact +632-414-4777 and +63928-505-7285 or email aidahysg@yahoo. com.
