Setting Up “After Sir” & Romeo Lee and Jonas Eslao at Art Informal

Untitled

Two days before Tita Elaine’s show, After Sir, at Finale opened, we popped in to see the set-up. I think she wanted to spend a bit of time with us and some of her other friends since they’re based in Singapore and would leave for home the day after her show’s opening. The show is made up of her renditions of some of Sir Bobby Chabet’s work that meant something to her. It was so good! I’m saying that without Chabet-bias—I’ve always been a fan of hers.

Based on Chabet’s Ziggurat series, which you can see here. I mean. Come on, look at it. It’s beautiful.

I’ll post photos of the show itself later. It just kind of made sense to post these up before the ones of the actual show. :) You can go see it now, though, at Finale.

A few weeks ago, my brother found a cafe/restaurant quite close to Finale (outside the La Fuerza compound) called The Pantry. It’s situated right below an architecture studio called BAAD Studio, I think. We had a late lunch there and coffee after the set-up.

We stayed there until well past 7 because we forgot about Friday rush hour traffic. It took us a while to get to Art Informal for the opening of Romeo Lee’s and Jonas Eslao’s solo shows. These are mostly close-ups because the rooms were packed.

New favorite alert! I am so attracted to these pieces by Jonas Eslao. I think I’ve only seen his stuff in one other group show, but I can’t be sure. Anyway, those pieces are way different from the ones he’s showing at AI right now. So good.

Both shows are on display until July 21.
