Opening reception with the artist: 10 July 2014, 6-9 PM
Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea
Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea is pleased to present Click: Paintings, an exhibition of new works by Marc Gaba at the Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea (3rd Floor, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City).
Marc Gaba’s latest show dubbed “Click: Paintings” is described by art critic Cid Reyes as “more emotionally composed and contained when viewed against a “retrospective” of Gaba’s works.” Reyes adds “While always intellectually engaging the viewer to ponder the riddle of Gaba’s enigmatic sphinx, the works can be relished for their purely optical suavity.”
In his Artist’s Statement, Gaba writes: “All my paintings are composed as poems. I have written poems as visual art; I make paintings as poems.”
On a series called “Pure Relations”, Cid Reyes comments that they “are Gaba’s exploration of how a shape demands a particular colour, and vice-versa. Not only do form and colour counterpoint each other’s dictate, they resolve what started as an internal conflict leading to each other’s obliteration, into a harmonious organic and geometric relationship.”
Click: Paintings will be on view at Altro Mondo ∙ Arte Contemporanea (3rd Level, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City 1228 Philippines) until August 1, 2014.
