Salibio’s Orientalia and Consorio’s monochrome surrealism at Art Underground
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 07:00 AM November 24, 2014
Iya Consorio and Mimi Salibio present their new works in “Weird Machine” and “Waking Season” at Art Underground.
The shows reveal the thought-provoking practices of a new breed of contemporary artists, characterized by a highly nuanced aesthetic and tinged with references to Eastern spirituality and post-Enlightenment philosophy.
Salibio majored in Painting at the Far Eastern University. Her aesthetic leans toward the East—Japanese woodblock printing, for instance, and Hindi mythological charts.
Consorio, meanwhile, is a product of the Fine Arts program of the University of Santo Tomas. Using a decidedly monochrome palette, the works of Consorio are skewed to more surrealist figurations.
Both shows will open at 6 p.m. on Nov. 28 and run until Dec. 12 at Art Underground, 814 Balagtas St., Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City. Call (632)7210745 or e-mail [email protected]
