CAVE OF THE GODS


CAVE OF THE GODS

(The art exhibition is dedicated to my grandparents Candido, Isidora, Landis & Rosa)

The artist as a modern-day caveman tries to relearn, regain, relive, revisit, refigures and revision an old culture and an old religion. He tries to rediscover as well a primordial need to seek an understanding onto his role in humanity as God’s creature; hence, he makes an exposition into the realm of the Gods. As a being created in his Creator’s own image, he nurtures this gift by following in the footstep to create via the artistic expressions of painting and sculpture. Man becomes a creator himself, a tool and an artifier of the Gods. Art is a personal conviction just like everyone’s choice of faith.

The artist believes first and foremost that artists should have faith as well in their art. Using God’s gift of freewill the artist used the free rein of this imagination to revision imagery.

The artist has always been fascinated with history, culture and religion so he anchors his artworks on these field of knowledge and interest. The process he used in most of his paintings is non-objective abstraction while the sculptures are figurative but contemporary in methods. Most sculptures are made with found objects and formed into identifiable art objects. Some broken and defaced sacred statuaries were rescued from being lost forever then presented. A kind of exposition into rescue archeology by the artist to preserve the neglected.

Finally, the artist understands that the contemporary church like contemporary art is presently undergoing evolution. The artist as a conscious member of the church answers by staging this show as a proposition of how evolution and change can take place.
