TYING memory and family together is tackled by folk-narrative painter Alexander Jorge “Aljo” Pingol in his latest exhibition, “Traces of Memory,” which will open Sept. 1 at the Atrium of the Podium, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City.
In the exhbit, Pingol, a product of the fine arts program of the University of Santo Tomas, uses his sense of classical composition to evoke nostalgic scenes of the Filipino family. His aesthetic, referencing the likes of Franco-Russian Modernist Marc Chagall, demonstrates a myriad of styles and movements, from surrealism to primitivism, to a naïf sense of the idyll.
“Traces of Memory” will have an artist’s reception at the Podium on Sept. 3, 6 p.m. at the Atrium of the Podium, where it will run until Sept. 6. It will then transfer to Galerie Raphael, 2/F, Shops Serendra Mall, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Sept. 7-14.
