“Dance of Roses”

Carlo Magno mixes abstraction and representation in “Exquisite Reverie,” which will run at Rockwell Makati on Feb. 11-19.

Best known as an abstract artist, Magno utilizes substance, color, line and movement to maximize visual significance. His paintings portray substance, ideas and emotion through gestural strokes and colorism.


In “Exquisite Reverie,” Magno sees the human form as both a living sculpture and landscape. Viewed through the poetry of the artist, the female form is unique and mysterious, alternately expressing empowerment or vulnerability. The artist combines this imagery with his personal commitment to abstract expressionism while slowly unveiling the hidden detail and subtle beauty of the muse.
