Catch Lofranco’s The One The Morning After Exhibit at Tin-Aw Gallery, opening on June 13
Abstract art with literal twists
(SPOT.ph) There’s art that needs a bit of explaining...and then, there’s folded, crumpled, corrugated pieces of paper with splashes of color that serve to fascinate, with little need to charm anyone with hidden meanings or subtext that needs to be teased out.
(Joermi) Lofranco’s exhibit title seems to be missing a word or two but it also works as a piece of advice: if it doesn’t make sense to you, the rest of what you’ll see might not-so focus on what’s there, rather than what’s absent. His art, he says, is a play between spontaneity and structure.

More than anything, The One The Morning After is an invitation from the artist to explore geometry with him-lines, planes, and the patterns created through intersections. Any person with the slightest fascination for textures would find this experiment in form interesting. One can read into the symbols borne of the random creasing, but just like in small-scale origami, the art is in the process.
The One the Morning After opens on 13th June 2014 and will be on view until 4th July 2014. Tin-aw Art Gallery is at the Upper Ground Floor of Somerset Olympia, Makati Avenue, Makati City. For more information, call 892-7522, e-mail email@example.com, or visit www.tin-aw.com.
