Ciane Xacier poster 12.jpg

Framed | January

Ciane Xavier
 

In the exhibition "Framed," I embrace the medium of oil painting, a discipline that harkens back to my foundational artistic roots. This transition, influenced by my current experience of pregnancy, represents a harmonious blend of life's creative forces with artistic expression. As an sculptor, this temporary shift to painting is not a deviation, but a reconnection with the primal elements of my artistic practice.

Rafael la Madrid poster final 1.jpg

Paths, Found Rocks, and Moss | March

 

Rafael La Madrid
 

Paths, Found Rocks, and Moss by Rafael La Madrid invites us on a journey through the unforeseen interplay of nature and its elements. With a piece of rock, the artist realized how mysterious life truly is. One of the models for his lifelike oil paintings is a mossy, craggy rock with just the tiniest bit of green leaves sprouting. A wonderful story to tell behind the image is that the central object within started dry and smooth, yet curiosity and the artist’s restless spirit compelled him to water the rock every day, not knowing what to expect. Surprisingly, after a few months of doing this repetitive activity, life sprouted. Through his masterful strokes in rendering this moment in oil, La Madrid shows his viewers the intricate connections between life, renewal, and the inherent beauty in both the organic and inanimate.

Group Show 

Still Standing Firm marks SIGAHUM’s 4th group exhibit, paying homage to their creative roots and ongoing journey toward artistic maturity.

Leveraging their background in architecture, the exhibit features an installation where stretched canvases and wooden panels serve as pillars, arranged back-to-back in the gallery space. These pillars, beyond their structural role, symbolize the creative, social, and motivational strength inherent in artist communities. Each pillar stands as a testament to the power of diversity fortifying the collective aesthetic.

In the relentless and isolating complexity of contemporary life, Nina Garibay, like many of her millennial and younger counterparts, has navigated her way through self-crafted coping mechanisms to endure the fast-paced challenges of existence.

Paikutin ang ruleta
Na nakatunghay ang mata sa iyo
At ituturo ang mga posibilidad

Tatlong tanong
Ang magdidistrongka

Niño stand as silent witnesses. These divine icons seamlessly transition from his personal space to his canvases, held by his iconic crimson character in stark white attire.


 

Julieanne Ng poster final.jpg

From Ash We Came | May


Julieanne Ng

To live and shine eternally like the sun is an aspiration for many, forgetting that even the stars at night have already passed. Vainglory is a theme that runs in countless stories of ruin. It births marvels and tragedies alike, and no exception was that of Daedalus– a highly ambitious craftsman and architect who was intoxicated by his own genius causing the downfall of his son, Icarus.

FINAL POSTER.jpg

Canned Thoughts | May
 

Carlo Tanseco

Across the neighborhoods of the Philippine archipelago, from the tiniest shanty to the grandest mansion, canned goods stand as ubiquitous symbols of sustenance and familiarity. They line the shelves of sari-sari stores and supermarkets alike, bridging socio-economic divides. Among those about to live or work abroad, they carry these items in suitcases as they serve as steadfast reminders of home.

Neil Pasilan, 2024 - KOLEKSYON.png

Koleksyon | June
 

Neil Pasilan

Koleksyon shares with us Neil Pasilan’s personal compilation of his own works; an anthology of stories in the fringe of his grand narrative. Much like objects in a museum, they are likewise preserved, cared for, and revered. They represent fragments of his imagination and forms of expression. The pieces are remnants of pursued visions and completed endings since they were made of leftover paint and used palettes. We find meaning in the materiality beyond what was prescribed, complemented by the artist’s confidence in the dynamic behavior of color.

 

Mark Andy Garcia, 2024 - Alive Inside.png

Alive Inside | June
 

Mark Andy Garcia

In his latest exhibition, Alive Inside, Mark Andy Garcia invites viewers to explore the resonance between the external world and internal states of being. This series of six paintings, each measuring 4 by 4 feet, encapsulates the essence of human emotions and psychological rhythms as mirrored by the natural environment. Garcia’s choice of title, Alive Inside, reflects his intention to bridge the gap between the viewer’s internal experiences and the external world’s cyclical and ever-changing nature.

Lindsey Lee, 2024 - YOUR MOUTH HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN.png

Your Mouth Has A Mind Of Its Own | June
 

Lindslee

"Your Mouth has a Mind of Its Own" is an exhibition that explores the intricate layers of Filipino mentality, ideology, belief, culture, and tradition. Through this body of work, I aim to reveal the pervasive influence of superstitious beliefs and religion on the collective psyche. My intention is to illustrate how these elements often precede rational thought, leading to instinctual, sometimes detrimental, responses.
