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.

For Goodness Sake by Clairelynn Uy

Clairelynn Uy’s latest exhibition, For Goodness’ Sake, exposes the role of pop culture within subjects of war and violence in contemporary times. Deviating from discussions of its usual causes (political and social frictions), comics, television shows, movies and video games are now put under new light. Instead of these being seen as entertaining distractions to more relevant happenings, they are re-introduced as vehicles through which one’s perceptions and ethics are shaped.

The spectacle of fighting and violence, sugarcoated with the use of animals and plants instead of humans, provides humor and appeal that makes the public’s tolerance, involvement and eventual addiction more acceptable. Cartoon-like battle scenes layered with realistic portraits of animals create a strange and tragically funny reminder of how these dispensable cultures subconsciously promote what society claims to detest. The title, taken from the popular English phrase that expresses exasperation, is ironically paired with these colourful and comical pieces, showcasing Uy’s own brand of creative wit.
