At Gallery 1, Steve Santos, in his latest exhibit, veers away from focusing on a singular subject or concept, opting to concentrate his creative energy on urban landscapes in acrylic. “It allows me to show patterns and the composition of a city or a location’s specific geographic area, its environment and its social patterns,” says
At Gallery 2, Artist Pandy Aviado considers his pieces as “works in progress” until they are sold. For his latest exhibit, titled Pictures @ the Exhibition (Homage to Mussorgsky), he is presenting artworks that were refined over time with layers and layers of paint. The title of the exhibit is based on the musical piece Aviado was listening to while working on the said pieces. “Most of the images are from my works in the 80s and 90s. The initial image is a print from an etching. Through the years, I paint over them until they end up as a painting,” explains Aviado. The result is a collection that is meant to be seen primarily in an assemblage or in an intimate space of a collector.
And at Gallery 3, Cid Reyes showcases his recent abstract paintings with the collective title “Radiance.” An avowed abstractionist, Reyes, who is also one of the country’s respected art critics, explores the interaction between light and a highly activated surface. This is Reyes 16th solo exhibition.
