Bacolod based artist Roderick Tijing expresses his sense of returning to his roots as a painter.
The title “The Return of the King” represents Roderick’s newest take on his painting exploration. Here is what he has to say:
“The ‘King’ represents the people or anyone who leads his people may it be a General in the frontline, an artist, a musician, politician, a church leader, a cowboy, a farmer, a player, a philanthropist or anyone who was away for awhile and now has return to lead or to resume the things they do best. In this case for me, as an artist, i am returning to my old form, my old style that I love; landscapes or painting scenes but with a twist now as i developed through time, with my own characters.”
Roderick further explains that his inspiration was drawn from his trips to Europe as he ventured through many of Switzerland’s castles and landscapes. The many stories he picked up during his travel inspired him to read about the life of former Kings and Queens and to know more about the ways of their livelihood during their reign. His thoughts have converted his imagination to add his twist of characters and situations that only Roderick can perceive. A parade-like instance of vivid scenery and whimsical plots gives Roderick his own interpretation of what artists can conspire.
“The Return of the King” will introduce viewers to a new twist in Bacolod’s arts guild as the show opens on March 28 (Friday) at 6PM. The exhibit will be held at .
Exhibit will run from March 28 to April 18, 2014.
