Chinese ink art at Duemila
“Moments de Creation,” an exhibit of works in Chinese ink by Sacha Cotture, focuses on the primal elements of life. The show runs until April 3 at Galleria Duemila.
Cotture is a Swiss painter and an architect residing in Manila. In painting, he manages to connect to nature, a world away from his rigid construction materials and architectural forms. He traverses the movements of nature as swift as the wind yet as solid as a rock. He lets the viewer peek in the processes of formation and the beauty of the beginning.
Galleria Duemila is at 210 Loring St., Pasay City. Visit www.galleriaduemila.com.
