I dedicated my Friday morning to art gallery hopping. It’s always beneficial when one is trying to explore oneself to see how others express themselves through their work. My cousin and I drove off to Galleria Duemila in Pasay City to view the works for Cesare Syjuco. I have never met the man but I am familiar with the works of his wife, Jean Marie and his very talented and beautiful daughters. I often wonder what their dinner conversations at home must be like, all of them so heavily dedicated to their own artful forms of expression. As we got to the gallery I had to stop and take a photo of the gate designed by Tony Twig
This is the first time I’ve seen an entire exhibit of Syjuco, and I must say that he’s got a sense of humor, which is refreshing amidst a lot of the dark and angst-ridden art I’ve been seeing lately. Of course, there is a twisted side to Syjuco’s vision, but it certainly makes you think and smirk.
Here’s the artist:
I was already taken by his first installation:
The rest, I will leave for you to view at your leisure, although I did have one or two more favorites such as the next two:
Enjoy the rest of the show, I believe it runs til the end of August 2010.
A video installation series:
Love rock 😀
Ah…the start of one big, fat…lie?
Check out the work for yourself! There’s still time.
Galleria Duemila is located at 210 Loring St., Pasay City, Metro Manila.
