ONGOING at Rockwell Power Plant Mall until July 23 is “Framed,” in which sculptor Michael Cacnio integrates original works by National Artist Federico Aguilar Alcuaz, Presidential Medal of Merit awardee Juvenal Sansó, Dominic Rubio and Angel Cacnio into his own sculptures.

The resultant artworks become a collaboration of sorts. Cacnio ensures that these “artists at work” sculptures highlight both his and the collaborating artists’ works.

In the South Court, also running until July 23, is a two-man exhibit featuring works by metal sculptor Ram Mallari and hand-carved wooden sculptures by Jerry Morada.

Mallari is known for using metal and found objects to create works that reference popular culture, history and historical conflicts. His “Steamtrooper” uses a contemporary artist’s aesthetic to portray a bust of a stormtrooper from the “Star Wars” films.

Morada lends a subtle hand to his practice which articulates human anatomy doing ballet, cradling a baby, sumo-wrestling or playing the saxophone, in mahogany and yakal wood, varnished and painted in earth tones.

At the Power Plant’s basement concourse, until July 23, is the exhibition of works by landscape painters Caress Banson, Rudolf Gonzalez, Antonio Daleon, Karina Baluyut and Isabel Campa.

All the shows are part of “Focus on the Arts: Celebrating Filipino Art,” a joint project of the Power Plant Mall and Galerie Joaquin.
