Near-forgotten inner stories, buried in the artists’ sub-conscious, tinged with adult pathos and awakenings of nostalgia, a melancholia for a more innocent romantic time and an adventure across borders of quantum time and space—all these are explored in the exhibit, “The Untold.”
For the exhibit, Dom Laroza created the painting, “Queen Antonietta the Avaricious,” while Rob Lucas did “Quantum Portal” and Bernard del Mundo, “Cuddle Trick,” which depicts the female protagonist Monique Althea communing with Espanyol, the gentlemanly rabbit lost in a warp in time. Ram Mallari sculpted in steel “Scorpius,” the Queen’s loyal minion.
Each participating artist contributed to the development of the plot, characters and narrative trajectory of the storybook exhibition, which curator Grace Halamani Escudero wove together in the storybook tapestry, “The Untold.”
Members of Art Underground, such as sculptor Ram Mallari, painters Aileen Lanuza, Vince de Pio, Dom Laroza, Rob Lucas, Bernard del Mundo, Averil Paras, Rodolfo Jay Torres Jr and Mimi Salibio also did works for the storybook.
