This Group Show in QC Celebrates the Culture of Quezon Province
From My Roots runs from February 16 to 28 at Robinsons Galleria.
(SPOT.ph) In movies and comic books, the superhero always has an origin story. It's the same too for artists, whose hometown and childhood memories always play a big part in the creative works that they produce. For this month's art exhibit at Robinsons Galleria in Quezon City, participating artists draw inspiration from their hometown, Quezon Province. From My Roots run from February 16 to 28 at the mall's third level.

Check out Joel Reglos' abstract made unique through textures and acrylic; Glenmore Lawig's sculpture made from brass, glass, and clear-cast resing; and Jake Alano's still lifes and portraits about Lucban.
There are also new works from Tristan Bamba, a muralist for 10 years now; Frank Hari, who started out as a realist but is now gearing towards cubism; Tres Roman, who often portrays female figures with long necks and fish eyes; Marmelo Valencia, who specializes in monochromatic art; Atimonan-born Nelle Amador, who associates birds and flowers with feminine images; Rafaella Elizah Bragais-Dala, who is currently exploring wire tree sculptural work; and Arvin “Avie” Abadilla Lafuente, who focuses on creating theatrical portraits of idealized women. These artists express the sentiment of the African proverb, “When your roots are deep, you don’t have to be afraid of the wind,” through their different medium.
Robinsons Land ARTablado—the property developer's art campaign—was launched in January 2020 in an effort to showcase emerging Filipino talents.
