ON LINE ORDERCrispin Villanueva Jr.

10 July to 24 August 2014*Pasilyo Vicente Manansala (2F Hallway Gallery)*The exhibit will be temporarily replaced by the Cinamalaya 10th Anniversary exhibit from 29 July - 15 August. It will resume on 16 August.
Opening reception: 10 July, Thursday, 6pmArtist talk: 19 August, Tuesday, 2pm
Let’s start with a cliché: the one about how every painting begins with a line. And follow that with another: the one about how every painting is a mass of lines, but really more of an index, controlled, in theory, by an itinerary, a discipline, a rhetoric, a vision. It is necessary to spout these clichés, to talk about painting in these almost childlike terms, because the initial impetus behind Cris Villanueva’s On Line Order was a nostalgic reflex. But not necessarily the iteration of nostalgia we’re familiar with, that is, nostalgia as history or as sentiment, but rather nostalgia as a sort of anthropology.
On Line Order began as an attempt to investigate Villanueva’s childhood, not so much his childhood per se but rather his artistic childhood, hoping to tease whatever membranes of connectivity he could to the artist he is today from the artist he was as a child. The original plan was to re-create his childhood drawings but the drawings he eventually re-created were not his, but his children’s. Yet, by dint of how they bear his influence and his imprint, they are, by implication, also his, and whatever patterns, and pattern recognition, might emerge is now filtered through a sort of recursive double-exposure, becoming an articulation of the circuitous nature of legacy. Another recursive series within the show paints and re-paints a single doodle over several works. The entire show, in fact, has a recursive quality, a sense of repetition and reproduction and re-creation, and the rigor that comes with it, playing as it does into the notion of process as a line of inquiry.
It might be a little too simplistic to say that Villanueva is coming back to painting by breaking it down to its most basic unit but, in many ways, that’s what he is ostensibly undertaking. And if On Line Order is about anything, it is about his obsession with the line and his willingness to pursue it through all its permutations; the line not only as the most basic unit of a painting but also, more so, as something loftier, as something primordial, as something metaphorical.  For Villanueva, the line is something that exists as much outside as it does inside the work, both a visible and invisible element of it, equal parts consequence and intention; a versatile and protean and catalyzing conduit for the way it bridges varieties of distance and the way it demarcates shapes and limitations and divides space and time, narrowing the gulf between past and present and extending into perpetuity.

Opening reception: 3 July, Thursday, 4pmArtist talk: 9 July, Wednesday, 2pm
Using the artist’s own photographic images as a takeoff point for compositional adventures, this exhibition presents a series of printed digital collages grounded on abstract principles of the absolute and the timeless—inspired by the modern tradition of the spiritual in non-objective art. Photographic features are unmoored from their connections to the recognizable world through a series of digital transformations and become raw abstract materials open to further manipulation in a process marked by chance and improvisation.

HUGO YONZON JR. RETROSPECTIVE
Hugo Yonzon Jr.

06 June to 06 July 2014
Bulwagang Juan Luna (CCP Main Gallery)

A retrospective exhibition of artist Hugo Yonzon, Jr. who was born on May 24, 1924. He started his career as an advertising artist, photographer and cartoonist until he devoted most of his time to painting oils of Philippine rural scenes.

UNANG AGOSwith support from Outlooke Pointe FoundationZeus BasconSergio BumatayMica Cabildo
22 May to 23 June 2014Pasilyo Vicente Manansala (2F Hallway Gallery)
Opening reception: 27 May 2014, Tuesday, 6pmArtist talk: 5 June 2014, Thursday, 2-4pm

Unang Agos, Filipino for “first stream/current”, is the first of a series of exhibitions by Outlooke Pointe Foundation (OPF) Artist Summit participants. For this exhibition, artists Zeus Bascon, Sergio Bumatay and Mica Cabildo immediately took to the exhibit venue. They chose to focus on the site of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, with its rich history and aesthetic brilliance. Exhibiting in the Pasilyo Vicente Manansala, with its view of the Roxas Blvd. and the adjacent Manila Bay, finds both merit and contemplation in the three young artists.
Bascon, Bumatay, and Cabildo, different as their artistic tendencies are, somehow all found inspiration in the materials that burdened them as their work progressed. Making use of found objects, religious adornments, glass, rope, wood, and light, each of the artists struggled with the historical weight and internal meanings of their varied media. Seen together, the final artworks crate an exhibit that questions the meaning of art, history, significance, and identity.
Unang Agos is an exploration of OPF’s enduring vision of constantly seeing things with a new perspective, of expressing passion for the nation through creative expression that eludes any labels traditionally attributed to art.

11 June to 20 July 2014
Bulwagang Carlos V. Francisco (Little Theater Lobby)
Artist talk: 11 June, Wednesday, 4pm
Opening reception: 11 June, Wednesday, 6pm

Using photography as medium, the images in this exhibition were produced from encounters of a spaceman with various tribal communities in the Philippines. Melbourne-based artist Emmanuel Santos began the project in the Philippines because he believed that it would offer a wealth of knowledge appropriate for this project. The images were shot on analogue large format camera reminiscent of the early period of photography.

SETTINGFelix Bacolorwith support from the Ateneo Art Gallery
29 May to 13 July 2014Bulwagang Fernando Amorsolo (CCP Small Gallery)Opening reception: 29 May, Thursday, 6pmArtist talk: 02 July, Wednesday, 2-4pm

Setting is a depiction/simulation of the beautiful Manila Bay sunset. It touches on current issues affecting Manila Bay such as the right to aesthetics, the protection of the environment, as well as the protection of culture and heritage. The exhibit will be composed of an hour long looped video of a setting sun projected on the wall. An inch deep of water will be poured on top of a water-sealed table fronting the projection. Stand fans will be set to simulate ripples on the water.
Artist Felix Bacolor’s practice, as his works reveal, has spanned the dynamics of play and exploration in art-making through a variety of interest and media such as video, installation and sculpture. As his works move around permutations of objects within an installation, it is in this sculptural aspect of what these combinations become that contains his approach to experimentation and constant research.

PLATA FLORA
Jandy A. Carvajal

15 May to 13 July 2014
Pasilyo Victorio Edades (4F Hallway Gallery)
Opening reception: 15 May, Thursday, 6pm

Plata Flora is an exhibit of the time-honored art of repoussé, which is embossing metal sheets. The Philippines has remarkable examples of repoussé: santo accessories and carozas, the decoration on kalesa coaches, and surviving pre-Hispanic gold “death masks.” For this particular exhibition, artist Jandy A. Carvajal makes use of salvaged aluminum, an inexpensive and more accessible alternative to the materials traditionally used for repoussé.
