Under Observation

Through impressionistic architectural compositions, Alee Garibay gives us a peak into her creative vision. The absence of human figures only intensifies the pull of her paintings, inviting viewers not to stereotype.

"Inabel" is the Ilocano term for a handloom-woven cloth. It’s also a set-up of yarns being worked on a handloom. Inabel features cloth dating from 19th to 20th Century, mixed with modern pieces. It makes beautiful continuity and shifting of form, function, and technology.


The exhibit runs until September 26 at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila’s BSP Gallery.

These Are Happening Without Your Permission

Mariano Ching moved to oils from his recent acrylics in his solo exhibition These Are Happening Without Your Permission. This may explain the uninviting palette (and title!), or maybe it’s because of the Naoto Matsumura inspiration. Despite the dreary feel, the show is actually encouraging—and it dares the viewer to see that.


Exhibit runs until October 24 at the Silverlens.


Silverlens is at 2/F YMC Building 2, 2320 Don Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati City (info@silverlensgalleries.com or 816-0044). For more information, visit Silverlens' website.




Box Forts for Big Children

The simplest and most private moments for artist Yasmin Sison are in childhood and play. This brought forth a series of creations about wonder, and how we pursue it, with or without success. It embraces the silent chaos that playtime brings.

Dreams Within Dreams

Have you ever had a dream in 2D? This is what Lhean Villanueva outlines with vibrant, trippy and vivid creations. You will feel like your younger self, gravitated to neon colors and foreign thoughts. It’s a place where unicorns exist freely. Isn’t that enough reason for you to go?
