Artinformal is pleased to present three new exhibitions opening at our Makati gallery on April 27, 2019.
In the main gallery, Valeria Cavestany’s Random Crap From Here And There embodies the statement: Alle Kunst ist der Freude gewidmet - All art is dedicated to joy. The exhibit references her various travels while focusing on the things that make life colorful.
A set of paintings and a couple of sculptural works complete Neil Pasilan’s "Personal" - his latest solo show opening at Artinformal Makati’s Gallery 1. With scenes and themes from his childhood until he came of age, "Personal" is both artistic output and documentation of memories from his hometown in Bacolod.
Ella Mendoza continues her investigation into the contexts of food marketing and packaging in Packets of Probability. With meticulous attention to detail and form, she renders wet market items into clay as means to question how the ‘palengke’ has become outdated.
Valeria Cavestany (b. 1962) left Spain for the Philippines at an early age. As much as both Spain and the Philippines historically reference each other, both places are melting pots of different cultures. In the same vein, she is inseparable to her lifework as she plots out connections between cultures, searches for and translates beauty and transcendental ecstasy.
Neil Pasilan (b. 1971) is a self taught artist from Bacolod. Now based in Manila, his works have been exhibited in various galleries, such as The Drawing Room, Artinformal, and West Gallery.
Ella Mendoza (b. 1993) is a painting and art history major by training, but she started doing ceramics in 2015 and has since been an active presence in the field. She is currently a facilitator at the UP College of Fine Arts Ceramics Studio. She helped organized key international pottery and ceramics events such as Tropical Blaze and Paglulual.
