Castro at Kaida
“Acuity” by Gerry Castro opens May 6 at Kaida Contemporary. The artist presents 14 abstracts, each inspired by his own experimental musical pieces.
He makes use of ambient noise and recorded sound mixes for free-flowing, unstructured and impromptu sonic assemblages, sometimes including elements from his everyday life such as human breath, electronic pulses and gadget alerts, capturing texture, mood and feeling in the particular moment of creation.
Recording in darkness, the artist immerses himself in the experience, and endeavors to encapsulate his impressions into visual form, translating them into strokes, dashes and scumbles.
Some paintings are paired with devices that the audience can listen to, creating an engaging and collaborative encounter of the resulting mixed-media pieces. With postcard-sized sketches, photographs and other elements relevant to producing his materials, Castro will also display samples of his art music in cd format.
Kaida Contemporary is at 45 Scout Madriñan St., South Triangle, Quezon City.
