The Renaissance Art Gallery, regarded as a leading purveyor of non-representational art in the Philippines, celebrates its 14th anniversary with an exhibit, appropriately titled XIV, which shall run from June 8 to 20, 2017.
Curated by noted art critic, writer, and visual artist Cid Reyes, XIV features the works of 10 artists. They are Allain Hablo, a man of many talents who is, first and foremost, a thinking artist; Sio Montera, whose works are distinguished by an ambitiousness of scale and a mania for surprising materials; Josef Laureano, whose works are more audacious in the gestural character of abstract expressionism; Arley Carig, who advances into the evanescent depths of space; Jay Ragma, who generates visual excitement with throbbing retinal sensations; Art Bermido, who manipulates space with neither a beginning nor an end; Aner Sebastian, who transports the viewer into a once-remembered favorite spot of nature; Resty Tica, who pursues an abstraction of subtlety and tranquility in his works; Rick Hernandez, regarded as an acolyte of geometry who’s unburdened by objects and ornaments; and Sam Penaso, an award-winning artist who explores the three-dimensional field with his so-called scraptures.
Founded by Noli and Agnes Romero in 2003, the Renaissance Art Gallery has spearheaded the discovery and support of young abstractionists, giving them the opportunity of having their own first solo exhibition. Occasionally, however, the gallery also exhibits classic and conservative contemporary masterworks.
The Renaissance Art Gallery is on the fourth floor of The Artwalk, Building A of SM Megamall, Edsa cornor Julia Vargas Avenue, Mandaluyong City. For inquiries, call or send a message to 0917-7625692 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
