Stand Out
Art Lozano and Lester Rodriguez
Tam-awan Village

Tam-awan Village presents “Stand Out”, an engaging art exhibit that focuses on the roles of icons as vessels of cultural ideals and ideas.

Featuring the paintings of Art Lozano and Lester Rodriguez, the two-man exhibit showcases complementary artworks that seek to explore the underlying relationships between icons and the forces that make them.

For Filipinos who are accustomed to crowd-puller religious statues and ubiquitous celebrity billboards, icons and idols are not new. But for Lozano and Rodriguez, they mean much more than what they simply depict.

Juxtaposing conventional sketches of cultural and historical icons with untraditional imagery, the two artists create inquiries on our common notions of popular images, how they are created, and what ideas they carry. In “Stand Out”, icons and their makers are put on equal footing and go head to head as vessels of ideals and ideas.

“Stand Out” is on view at the Tam-awan Village, Pinsao Proper, Baguio City, until May 5.
