Issay Rodriguez's blueprints will kickstart your 2016 with amazing interpretations of life in Escolta

The exhibit opens on January 9.


( Issay Rodriguez spent seven months drawing, making prints, and taking photos to put together her solo exhibition, blueprints. The artist took her time understanding Escolta, Manila—familiarizing herself with the locale by absorbing its day-to-day scenes and documenting them through photographs. Check out the result of her artistic process at Silverlens. The exhibit opens on January 9, 2016, 6 p.m., and is on view until February 6, 2016.


"BERG SXFM" by Issay Rodriguez


Rodriguez fuses different time frames into a landscape laid out on paper, portrayed through memories and projections. Her works are done with “cyanophite” style—the combination of cyanotype print and graphite drawing—putting together different layers and vantage points, along with metaphors. By merging digital and analog technology, manual and mechanical labor, and historical and contemporary approaches, Rodriguez exposes the value of heritage and its promising potential today.


The exhibit opens on January 9, 2016, 6 p.m., and is on view until February 6, 2016 at Silverlens.



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