This show recognizes the diverse processes by which artists conceive of drawings. Rather than a device for illusionism and symbolism, the lines of a drawing can be indexical, the direct outcome of a process. A drawing can be a process of accumulating layers, an engagement with existing images. For others, drawing starts as a response to non-traditional materials or recent technology. It can be as convenient as selecting and combining images from one’s own mental library.

Spirits of Unsung Christmas Carols

In celebration of the Christmas season and Vintana.ph’s gallery opening, we prepared a group art exhibit entitled “Spirits of Unsung Christmas Carols”. In this exhibition, Vintana presents vibrant and meaningful Christmas-themed artworks by emerging artists across the Philippines. Each work has their own stories behind them—scenes and images that speak of sweet Christmas childhood memories like a caroling street child, a mechanical toy box with 80s and 90s vintage Filipino toys, dynamic strokes of abstract shapes and colors, and much more.

Mind over Matter

Van Tuico is a mid-career Filipino contemporary artist who works in painting and sculpture. His works, mostly paintings, employ the use of acrylic paint and industrial materials, such as cement and stainless steel. Unlike other artists whose work may seem similar, Tuico isn’t motivated to be intensely focused on materials and processes. These materials represent raw matter for Tuico to process and imbue with sensibilities, metaphors, and narratives, which derive not only from art, but from life and even the Spirit. They signify a bigger picture or a coming together of ideas in and outside the work of art. It could result from the process by which a theological principle is finally experienced. It could be an abstract or philosophical idea that finally makes sense or becomes practical. It could be the story behind a found object incorporated into a painting. Whatever the case, something is always going on that enters into the work as it is being made.
