Galimgim – Ambie Abaño solo show at Tin-aw

An urgency persists in remembering. Wrestling with the impositions of the present, one turns to memory to relive and revisit what once was. In response to this yearning, Ambie Abaño’s latest exhibition Galimgim, a Filipino term for nostalgia, is a homage to the forgone.

Triggered by the trifles of every day, she assembles intimate and specific imageries from brief encounters with people and places. Fleeting moments and their sentiments become encased in mundane objects, re-emerging as jewels radiating with stories and meaning. A collection of reminiscences as a woman, particularly a Filipina, Abaño navigates through the vagaries of time and presents a very personal mirror to the transience of our being.

Wooden books, chopping boards, wooden ironing board, batibot chairs, and a repurposed sewing machine are filled with meticulously drawn engravings. Umbrellas, mantones and paper bear woodcut prints of lace and floral patterns. Romantic and delicate designs, illustrations and portraits haunting each object with residues and echoes of the old.

Aside from her objects, her fascination with the rain and stars further indulges the sense of nostalgia. The habitual process of printing on different grounds turns into a meditative experience – a rhythm of breaths and pauses with every line and dot, momentarily immersed with a time long gone.

Memories linger in order to ground the present. Abaño takes the gesture of engraving to immortalize and reconnect with an irrevocable past, a way of alleviating the ache that comes with the fear of forgetting and the undeniable truth of the temporary.

The exhibition opens with an artist reception on 8 August 2014, 6 pm, and will be on view until 29 August 2014.

Tin-aw Art Gallery is located at the Upper Ground Floor of .

Roderick Tijing “The Return of the King” show

Roderick Tijing - The return of the king
NOVA Gallery presents – Bacolod based artist Roderick Tijing in “The Return of the King” | March 28, 2014 | FRIDAY | 6pm

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.
