Urban spaces are rife with the potential for the resolute abstractionist. The harshness of different materials - organic and inorganic - lurches alive in a kaleidoscopic aura of energy.
Taking its cue from her reference source - namely, the urban environment ? it is apt that her latest exhibition is titled URBN. Opening on Feb 8, 2013 at Galerie Stephanie in Libis, the show runs until February 21, 2013. URBN takes Ver’s audience through the distortion of the city, similar to how a dedicated practitioner bobs and weaves into, under, and around metropolitan crags and edifices. That experience of pure verve is captured in compositional abstractions, not unlike Rothko’s modernist forays into the multiforms.
With her background from the College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Ver bucks the common usage of minimalism in abstraction, preferring large swaths of brushworks and experimentations in color in her practice. URBN being her 6th solo show, Camille Ver is on the verge of becoming an important player in the development of abstract expressionism in the country’s visual arts scene.
