ALL THE WONDERFUL THINGS

This March 23, 2011 in SLab, Christina Dy presents All The Wonderful Things, a show commemorative of her characteristic large charcoal drawings of seascapes and skies, such as in her work in the 2010 Busan Biennale. However this time, Dy injects light into her black and white works by drawing fireworks in the night sky.


Dy’s show was inspired by a quote by celebrated Russian poet and novelist Boris Pasternak: "As in an explosion, I would erupt with all the wonderful things I saw and understood in this world."


While talking about "life, death and everything wonderful in between" with her friend, Raya Martin, Dy was introduced to Pasternak’s quote. At that time, they had just finished coloring a film trailer where the ending scene was of fireworks. Dy explains: “I chanced upon a video of fireworks I took while on a yacht this New Year's day. And I just felt everything connect. I think fireworks are beautiful, and they are so much like us. Everything starts, and ends, nothing lasts-- but in between there's this chance for us to shine ever so brightly."


All The Wonderful Things is about that in between. Dy makes a statement in the gallery walls. She fills them with drawings of fireworks not at the point where they shine brightest, but at the point where they are just about to go out. Like fireworks, All The Wonderful Things is a celebration of life. Like fireworks, the wonderful light is but an instant.

All the Wonderful Things by Christina Dy opens simultaneously with DOMINION by Wawi Navarroza at Silverlens Gallery and A Very Short Flowering Season by Christina Dy & Corinne de San Jose at 20SQUARE, SLab. The three shows run until April 23, 2011.


Christina Dy will have an Artist Talk on All the Wonderful Things on April 16, Saturday, 3-5pm in SLab. Words by Bea Davila; Image: Christina Dy, 02, 2011
