‘Imaginary Disorder’

“Imaginary Disorder” is Jay-R Delleva’s 8th one-man show, accomplished in the middle of the pandemic.

His curator Moreen Austria wrote that it is “commonly assumed that one is constantly predisposed by their outside environment when the influences, in reality, come from within. To quieten intrusive thoughts, the mind when foggy and in circles, cross-questions sometimes unwillingly and recedes to a corner of comfort.

“Imaginary Disorder” is Delleva’s solo exhibition where comfort and unrest form an assemblage of his conscious and subconscious experiences and contemplations.

Extending feelings of anxiety beyond questions of unfamiliarity, his works merge these into domestic and phobic spaces where limits and boundaries blur. Without intention to influence nor evoke a thought, the artist through this collection invites the viewer to form a connection based on the viewers own inner conflicts.”

Delleva is a full-time visual artist based in Silay City and is a member of the B-Sides Art Initiative. He is a semifinalist in the painting category at the 2006 and 2010 Metrobank Art and Design Excellence (MADE) awards.

He has had numerous one-man shows in Negros and Manila, and since 2006, has joined more than 30 group shows in Cebu, Negros, and Manila. Known for his whimsical and playful images, Jay-R credits his young daughter and her toys as his inspiration.

“Imaginary Disorder” opened on October 16 at Grey Room Art-Café at Art District Mandalagan and is now open to the public until November 13, 2021. Strict adherence to necessary health protocols is implemented.*
