SAM PENASO opens “ENSEMBLE” at BLUE + GRAY GALLERY
Sam Penaso unveils his latest works of paintings and sculptures at Blue + Gray Gallery located at the 2/L Shops at Serendra, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig on August 8 (Thursday) 2013 at 6:00 in the evening. Exhibit runs until the 18th of August.
For his paintings, Sam Penaso prepares his canvas with relief-like impressions by juxtaposing letters and number and paints it with monochromatic hues before painting the subject - portraits of people, young and old. The embossed letters and numbers are seemingly stamped on their faces. This is to signify the wisdom gained and developed through the years.
Sculptures, his latest exploration in a new medium, are cut-up, reconfigured, matt finished free standing steel pieces. Included is his very first recognized sculpture “SARIMANOK” that won him First Prize in the 2012 Art Association of the Philippines Annual Art Competition.
2013- He has been awarded a Fellowship Grant from the “Asian Cultural Council” (ACC) to do a 6 months artist residency tour in NewYork, USA.
“Ensemble” is about the unending quest of Sam Penaso to explore technology and communication to stimulate his creative musings.
