20 Square at Silverlens Gallery: Ryan Villamael’s Isles
So, this is a pretty overdue post, but as it happens, I have a hot/cold relationship with my blog and the subsequent oversharing on the Internet that it entails. A few weeks ago, my sister and I dropped by Ryan Villamael’s solo show, “Isles,” at Silverlens’ 20 Square. Here are a few photographs, and I’m sorry that I’m only telling you about this now because it was a seriously beautiful show that is probably best appreciated in person. Oops.
Next up on this post are some new shows up at West Gallery currently, and they’re up until September 6.
Gallery 1: Bernardo Pacquing’s Inattentional Blindness
I am an enormous Pacquing fan, but I think people generally know that about me. (I don’t know, maybe?) Inattentional Blindness has several large-scale abstract pieces that demonstrate his excellent intuition for color combinations and texture.
Gallery 2: Guillermo Naval’s Cheap Metaphysics
Gallery 3: Fernando Modesto’s Anonymous
Gallery 4: RM de Leon’s Go ahead!…enjoy looking at us!
I’ve always thought that RM de Leon was one of the most underrated artists in the Philippines. He plays with vintage illustration and abstraction.
