Artist Patricia Eustaquio leads us into the woods at Silverlens
The exhibit runs until September 19.
(SPOT.ph) Silverlens Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Patricia Perez Eustaquio entitled The Hunters Enter the Woods, which runs until September 19. In her latest show, Eustaquio’s paintings, sculpture, and wrought textile comment on a person’s exploration of the myth he has written in his head, often brought about by vanity and appetite.
Eustaquio is famous for blurring the line between craft and fine art, and her latest show is no exception. “My art practice is a fascination with appearances and the vanity of objects. My works have always championed the marginalized form—the still life, the crafts—and as a result, their translations underline this aspiration, this vanity: the desire to be desired,” she explains.

The paintings show still lifes that are rendered in black and white. These are paintings of rocks, flowers, and dead animals—pieces that appear much smaller compared to the large painted tableaus and majestic scenery that are often the subject of art.
