THE ESSENTIALITY OF POLYSTYLE SYNCRETISM TO A MULTIPLE PERSONALITY ARTIST IN THE 21st CENTURY




ARTIST STATEMENT

The Essentiality of Polystyle Syncretism to a Multiple Personality Post-Modern in the 21st Century is my first solo show in the Philippines since my show at the L.A. Artcore- Union Center for the Arts in Los Angeles, California in 2008. For this show, I'm continuing my strategy of 'Syncretism'- the merging of opposing art principles and ideas. The very obvious 'take-over' of different artistic personalities in each of my work or even in a single painting has been characteristic of my work from the start. This tendency may well make me a 'multiple personality artist', for my interest in this creative process is only kept piquant and inspired when each piece becomes a new journey of discovery.

The other technical innovations that I offer for this show are the ideas of the scroll-type or “tapestry paintings" (which I started in 1990 for the CCP 13 Artists Awards Show and have returned to recently), and the "cluster paintings", wherein several paintings are assembled together to comprise singular pieces.

Lastly, but not to compound the reading of the works, is the ingredient of 'pareidolia' - the psychological phenomena of seeing recognizable images in abstract patterns- that I call 'Alucinari', and which I welcome as part of my art. But 'Syncretism' and the other innovative offerings I've made within and outside the painting tradition are just a portion of the story, for the content of the paintings are quite another, and I leave the latents narratives and symbols for you, the viewers, to read into- not to spoil your fun - happy viewing!



After years of hiatus, artist Roy Veneracion embraces the Manila Art Scene once again as he stages new works for his show “The Essentiality of Polystyle Syncretism to a Multiple Personality Post-Modern in the 21st Century”. Composed of new pieces denotative of his skill and mastery in Syncretism, Veneracion constantly reinvents art by merging two or more art principles in order to discuss and elucidate environmental, ecological, racial and cultural issues.

The exhibit runs from 17 February to 11 March 2011 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 12A, La Fuerza Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City.
