SILVERLENS GALLERY, SLAG AND 20SQUARE OCTOBER 27 SHOWS




Silverlens Gallery, SLab and 20Square October 27 Shows
October 27, 2010, Wednesday

Silverlens proudly presents Blind Field: an exhibition on Photography and Place, Wawi Navarroza's curatorial debut. In this show, 14 artists explore their perceptions of place and space through the medium of photography. Navarroza defines it as "the way photography is used to intersect/interact with [place and space]."

With Yason Banal, Ringo Bunoan, Bea Camacho, Jed Escueta, Thomas Kellner, Jet Melencio, Renan Ortiz, Beatrix Pang + Peter Pilier + Susan Chan, Rachel Rillo, Gerry Tan, Maria Taniguchi and MM Yu, Blind Field takes photography beyond its traditional use and ”puts in question the spaces we occupy, the places we choose to contain ourselves in."

In SLab, we have another first. Elaine Roberto-Navas, a Singapore-based Filipino artist, will have a painting show all about water. This show, Wet Paint, is inspired by photographs of the River Thames taken by artist Roni Thorn. Thorn "depicted the different moods and portraits of the river"; and Wet Paint is Roberto-Navas' own version. Here, Roberto-Navas recreates water's many moods and faces with her characteristic use of impasto, the technique of laying on paint thickly. Wet Paint is curated by Roberto Chabet.

And finally in 20SQUARE is August by Maya Muñoz. Muñoz describes August as a portrait of Agnes, a character from Milan Kunderas' book entitled Immortality. Interestingly enough, Muñoz rarely paints portraits, but when she does, it is usually of one person. And this time, for this show, Agnes is that one.

All three shows open on October 27, Wednesday 6-9pm. And will run simultaneously until November 20, 2010.
