‘Tension’ at Art Anton


The group exhibition “Tension” is currently on view at Art Anton gallery until March 29.

Participating artists are Jeho Bitancor, Mideo Cruz, Iggy Rodriguez, Simkin de Pio, Racquel de Loyola, Jojo Soria de Veyra, Michelle Lua, Dengcoy Miel, Keiye Miranda, Buen Abrigo, Mark Salvatus, Wire Tuazon and Jericho Vamenta.

The theme of tension pervades the collective works, all harking back to the word’s original Latin root, “tendere,” which means “to stretch.” Applying both to a physical or spiritual state—triggered by economic, political, cultural or psychic disturbance—tension occurs when something is stretched beyond its normal condition. The past participle of “tendere” is “tensus” which adverts to a situation of struggle.

Art Anton is at G/F S Maison, Conrad Hotel Manila, Pasay City. Call 5313086.

Lamarroza book

“Prudencio Lamarroza: The Book,” now in the writing stage, is in search of paintings that will complete the documentation of the artist’s catalogue of works.

Renowned for his iconic “Amburayan” series, with its trademark multicolor pebbles and rocks, Lamarroza raised our consciousness for the need to protect and preserve the ecological balance of nature.

The book is authored by art critic Cid Reyes.

If you have any artwork by Lamarroza, call 09062876710.
