Salát, salot, sálit.
The airbrush, more infamously known for covering literal and symbolic imperfections, receives leverage as Caloy Gernale once again exploits the tool in creating five of his most recent paintings for a one-man exhibition called “Sal_t.”
"Sal_t" is a visual narrative of both concurring and recurring crises that fundamentally lead to the advancement of the national-democratic movement, from the strategic defensive to the strategic stalemate.
Using a familiar figure of speech called synecdoche, Gernale intends to put the discussion on local/global issues into its most basic level and more importantly, to show the marginalized no longer as victims whose plight we lament for, but as proletarian revolutionaries ready to take matters into their own hands and mold their own destiny.
