Beyond Imagery & Meaning presents the work of 6 contemporary Filipino artists. The artists in this exhibition represent a wide variety of styles and impulses, from pop sensibility to contemporary realism to abstract expressionism. The range of works presented are diverse and encompasses various media like sculpture, painting and engraving.
The exhibition aims to show the challenges the artists are confronting, perhaps not so much from within their artistic community but more of an external one. How they are responding to the art historical style they are baptized? Do they then subvert, appropriate, reanimate or merge the eras of past styles? Collectively the exhibition gives a glimpse of the dynamic art that is being made in the Philippines today. Their works characterize the vigor and vitality of contemporary art, and at the same time, provide a counterpoint to the academic past of Philippine art.
The artists featured are: Benjie T. Cabrera, Benjie Cabangis, Eman Santos, Pete Jimenez, Reynold dela Cruz and Rene Robles.
The exhibition is part of the Philippines Art Trek, an annual showcase of Philippine art organized by the Embassy of the Philippines and presented by invited galleries in Singapore. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the successful collaboration.
