Noted sculptor Glenn Cagandahan explores the quintessence of the Filipino in “Kasaganaan,” opening Sept. 26 at Galerie Francesca in SM Megamall.

Glenn Cagandahan (b. 1977) is a sculptor of folk imagery and subjects, known particularly for his small, epoxy-metal-wood figurines of farmers and their families on carabaos. He studied at the College of Fine Arts of the University of the Philippines. He’s a teacher of Humanities at the University of the Philippines Los Baños. In 2008, international auction house Borubodur successfully sold his sculpture, “Best Friends.”

In “Kasaganaan,” Cagandahan introduces sculptural relief. Wall-mounted panels of raised sculpted material, the technique is considered a demonstration of exceptional sculptural aptitude. The exhibition showcases the artist’s ability to assimilate new methods and materials to bring about a fresh new approach to sculpture.

Galerie Francesca is at the 4/F,  SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City. Call tel.  632-5709495 or e-mail galeriefrancesca.mega@gmail.com.
