Betsy Westendorp and Igan D’Bayan are featured in a back-to-back exhibit, which opens on June 18, Tuesday, 6 p.m., at The Crucible, fourth floor, SM Megamall A, Mandaluyong City.
The show is a juxtaposition of contrasting styles, philosophies and techniques — Westendorp is into elegant portraits and all-engulfing skies, while D’Bayan is obsessed with the macabre and “things that go bump in the night.” The two artists will each present a self-portrait surrounded by satellite paintings.
“I think, technically, Betsy and Igan are known for portraiture — and that’s the basic premise (of the exhibition),” explains Crucible owner Sari Ortiga, who conceptualized the show.
“When someone sits in front of you for a portrait for the first time, it is the beginning of an interesting adventure,” describes Westendorp. “And by the end of the sessions, you have become really good friends.
