Plata Flora

Pasilyo Victorio Edades (4F Hallway Gallery)
Cultural Center of the Philippines

Plata Flora is an exhibit of the time-honored art of repouss√©, which is embossing metal sheets. The Philippines has remarkable examples of repouss√©: santo accessories and carozas, the decoration on kalesa coaches, and surviving pre-Hispanic gold “death masks.” For this particular exhibition, artist Jandy A. Carvajal makes use of salvaged aluminum, an inexpensive and more accessible alternative to the materials traditionally used for repouss√©.

Opening reception is on May 15, 2014, Thursday, at 6pm. 

Exhibit runs until July 13, 2014.
